Brandon Mcfadden Obituary, Gary Man Charged With Fatally Shooting Drug Dealer

Gary man faces charges for killing a man lured to an apartment to sell drugs.

Brandon McFadden, now 22, was charged Wednesday with murder and unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon. He was also charged with a firearms enhancement. If convicted, it could add 5-20 years to a prison sentence.

He is in custody, ordered held without bail.

Gary Police arrived 1:40 p.m. March 30 to the 4400 block of Delaware Street, where a young man laid on the front steps of a small apartment building.

The victim was identified as Jordan Miller, 24, of East Chicago.

He died from six gunshots to the torso, according to the Lake County Coroner’s Office. His death was ruled a homicide.

Witnesses said Miller and another man were there to sell drugs, according to the affidavit.

Police found a handgun on Miller’s body, which was unused, and noted the apartment’s back door was “barricaded”.

A witness said a man named “Ray-Ray” called Miller “several times” to get marijuana and mushrooms. The man was a longtime customer, according to court records.

Miller went inside, while the other man stayed in the car.

About five seconds later, Miller walked out. A man named “FettyBando” shot him from behind, then stood over the body, according to the affidavit. A third man with Miller returned fire, then ran into an alley, court records state.

“Ray-Ray” and “FettyBando” ran back into the apartment.

McFadden admitted that he was “FettyBando” when police detectives confronted with a YouTube music video, but claimed it was only a “rap persona”.

McFadden was arrested on the 3900 block of Tennessee Street with a “red-like substance” on his pants. Besides the murder charge, he had an active warrant for a probation violation.

In his police interview, detectives concluded McFadden was “misleading” and only gave up new information when confronted with what they already knew.

He first told police he stayed home that day, but later admitted going to smoke with “Ray”. He was at the apartment when the shooting happened, but stayed in Ray’s vehicle, he claimed.

He later admitted he did go into the apartment for a few minutes, then returned to the van and heard shots. McFadden said “Ray” “calmly” came back and claimed the two drug dealers “tried to rob me”, according to the affidavit.

Miller was a “brother”, McFadden said.

When detectives said they had identified McFadden as the shooter, he stopped the interview.
