The shooting occurred when the two went to an apartment complex to interview a woman and her mother. Detective Brann went to the front of the apartment complex, while his partner went to the back of the building.

While in the rear, Detective Brann's partner heard gun shots fired from the front of the complex. When he ran to investigate, he was met by an armed man. The two exchanged gunfire and the detective was shot in the leg as the suspect fled the scene.

When backup officers arrived, they found Detective Brann shot in the stairwell of the complex. He was transported to Battle Creek Health Systems where he died from his wounds.
