New documents released by the State Attorney's Office explain what it was like moments before Brevard County Sheriff’s Deputy Barbara Pill was gunned down in Melbourne.
Words were exchanged between the alleged gunmen and Pill seconds before her death on March 6. The report says Brandon Bradley, 22, allegedly said, "Are you really going to kill me over nothing?"
Deputies said Pill never drew her gun.
This detailed report outlines the investigation from the day of shooting and the weeks that followed as investigators interviewed witnesses and people connected to the case.
The entire ordeal stems from a robbery where Bradley and Andria Kerchner, 20, are accused of stealing $670 worth of items from a nearby motel.
Now they are looking at first-degree murder charges.
Bradley apparently repeatedly states before the shooting that he is not going back to prison.
Kerchner was on the phone with another man when the shooting happened, and could hear the two arguing then the gunshots, according to the documents.
A 30-year veteran and grandmother, Barbara Pill had an outstanding record with the department.
Officials said she spotted and pulled over the white SUV the two suspects were driving in.
The report indicates that she was shot five times – including once in the head.
Also included in the documents is a letter the Kerchner wrote to the Pill Family.
She states that she is sorry, traumatized by the shooting, and even gives her cell phone number and tells them to give her a call anytime.
