83-year-old arrested attempted murder

An 83-year-old Mineral Wells man has been arrested for the attempted murder of his stepson. The incident happened Tuesday night on NE Park Avenue. A 55-year-old victim had suffered a gunshot wound to the arm. Officers arrived and told 83-year-old Willie Brady several times to show his hands but he refused and told officers that if they were going to shoot him, to just shoot him. Officers were able to quickly identify an object in the suspects hand as house keys, and were able to take him to the ground and into custody without further incident. After the initial investigation was completed by patrol officers and the on-call detective, Brady was charged with attempted murder.
