A number of police agencies responded to a home on the 3000 block of Mechanicsburg Road on June 1 for a report of a shooting, according to a deputy affidavit. Twelve people were at the home, the affidavit says, and a man had been shot in the leg and was bleeding when law enforcement arrived.

Clark County deputies launched an investigation where they spoke with numerous people and were told four or five people, including Wilson, went to the home to start a fight with the man who was shot.

“Upon arrival, Brandon Wilson exited the transporting vehicle and discharged the recovered .32 caliber revolver, striking (the man) in the leg,” the affidavit says.

After being shot, the man obtained a 12-gauge shotgun and returned fire, according to the affidavit. No one was hit in the return fire, according to the affidavit.
