A Collin County Grand Jury indicted Brandon McCall, 26, of Garland, today on nine felony charges stemming from his actions at a Richardson apartment complex on Feb. 7, announced Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis.
The Grand Jury returned two capital murder indictments against McCall: one alleging that he murdered a peace officer, Richardson Officer David Sherrard, and the other alleging he murdered two individuals, Officer David Sherrard and Rene Gamez, II. The Grand Jury also returned seven indictments for the first degree felony crimes of Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant where McCall stands charged with discharging a weapon at seven other Richardson police officers at the time of Officer Sherrard's murder.
Following the indictments, Mr. Willis filed with the District Clerk his Notice of Intent to Seek the Death Penalty for McCall in the capital murder cases.
The Collin County District Attorney's Office would like to thank their law enforcement partners at the Richardson Police Department and the Plano Police Department for their hard work and continuing efforts towards seeking justice in this case.

An arrest and indictment are not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
