Two killed in motel shoot-out
Published 12/2/07 in The Times-Herald

A Newnan man was killed Thursday night at an Albany, Ga., motel after several men stormed his room in what authorities described as an attempted robbery.

It appears the Newnan man shot and killed one of his attackers during the struggle.

Jeffery Brandon Todd, 27, was originally reported in Associated Press reports as living in Carrollton, but he lived on Brandy Lane in Coweta County, according to his father, Jeff Todd.

"He was a great person and a hard worker, and we are all stunned at what happened," Jeff Todd said. "He wasn't familiar with Albany, and it looks like he picked a bad part of town to stay in."

Todd said Albany police told him that during the month of November there had been four robberies at the Motel 6 on Thornton Road where the incident occurred.

Todd said his son was employed with Georgia Power and had gone to Albany Thursday to prepare for a Friday interview he hoped would lead to a promotion.

The young man's mother talked to him Thursday evening at about 8:45 p.m. and said Todd was studying for a technical test that was part of his interview, according to Jeff Todd.

According to local press reports, other residents of the motel heard a loud crash and then several gunshots. Police believe the four men who attempted to rob Todd were staying in the motel.

Jimmy Teemer, 17, of Albany, was shot three times and killed during the incident. Jeff Todd said his son carried a gun when he traveled.

The victim's father said he was informed by Albany police that before his son was fatally wounded, he shot and killed one of his attackers.

"My son was just trying to defend himself, said Jeff Todd. "He never went looking for trouble."

By Friday night, authorities had arrested three men and charged them with felony murder and aggravated assault in Todd's death. Arrested were Lyndon Bernard Johnson, 18, Patrick Jackson, 17, and Benjamin Revill, 17.


Rest In Peace Brandon You Will Be MISSED !!!!!

I would like to send flowers, or make a charitable donation (if that's the family's wishes) from the "Woody's Taxidermy" family, but would need someone local that knows the details to make the arrangements/get the information.

If anyone can provide information about the arrangements, please PM me.

I go out of town a good bit and never take a weapon with me I guess I need to by myself a Christmas gift because of scum like those three, may they all rot in ************.

Things like this prove that the guy in Texas is a hero for taking out the scum that robbed his neighbors house. If he hadn't, the two he took out may have done the same thing to someone in Texas.

A lot more unemployment, recession, etc, out there these days.
Some folks act a little more desperate, when things get tough.

The bubble burst on that Construction boom in North Georgia and that means disruption. Our area has been emptying out of residents-particularly from the construction industry.

Watch! Some of them might want to take something of yours with them.

Hey everyone- I had the pleasure of working with Brandon at GA Power for about a year and a half. As far as great guys go- he was the real deal. There was such a large turnout at the funeral last night, that there wasn't even standing room left, in the sanctuary. I can't say enough great stuff about him. We're all still shocked at what happened, and we're gonna be missing him for a long time.
I know he was a fan of this site- I saw him on here a good bit.

What should happen is, at the moment of convition they are dragged out in public view, shot by poor to fair marksmen (so they die slowly), and the family of the offenders be made to pay the bill for the bullets and clean up.
