Ex-Austin Peay DL Nigel Brannon Shot and Killed During Drug Transaction in Oklahoma City

If the name Nigel Brannon rings a bell it is because of an incident that happened a couple of months ago where he sliced his teammates neck over losing a hotel room key.

The cut was so deep it required multiple stitches and the teammate was very lucky to be alive.

He was arrested for assault and suspended from the team.

It looks like he continue with his illegal activities and it cost him his life this time.

Oklahoma City police are investigating a deadly shooting involving a former college football player.

Police said Nigel Brannon, 21, was shot multiple times on Monday at a northwest Oklahoma City apartment complex.

Police said Brannon died inside a car in the parking lot. The other man in the car was identified as 22-year-old Paris Tolver.

“There were two individuals inside a vehicle,” said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Dillon Quirk. “They were conducting an illegal activity, and at some point, it resulted in one male being shot by another.”

Police arrested Tolver at the scene. He was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center on one complaint of first-degree murder.

The shooter says it was self-defense and he stayed at the scene because he didn’t have anything to hide, so we will have to see how the trial plays out.

Brannon, a lineman, came to Memphis as part of the Tigers’ 2018 recruiting class. He spent three seasons at Memphis before transferring to Austin Peay in time for the 2021 season. Brannon appeared in 23 games during his time at Memphis from 2019-2020 after redshirting during the 2018 season. He recorded two total tackles in a Memphis uniform, both coming during the 2020 campaign after he spent the majority of his playing time in 2019 on special teams.

Brannon, however, never saw a snap at Austin Peay. He was suspended from the program indefinitely in late July following an incident in which he reportedly pulled a knife on a teammate. Brannon was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. According to the affidavit obtained by the Memphis Commercial-Appeal, Brannon was accused of holding a teammate against his will and threatening him with a knife.

Crazy world.
