MILTON | Man charged in teen stepson's death

MILTON, Ga. -- A Milton man waived his first court appearance hearing Monday, a day after reportedly shooting his stepson to death.

Eric Bradley Brandon, 46, is accused of killing 16-year-old Alex Koser at around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Milton Police Captain Shawn McCarty said Brandon called 911 and told the operator he'd just shot his son. He surrendered when officers arrived.

Koser, a student at Alpharetta High School, was found dead inside the Milton townhouse. He had been shot three times with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Another young boy was in the home as well. He told investigators that a fight broke out between the stepfather and stepson shortly after the boys' mother left to buy groceries.

Brandon has been charged with felony murder and firearm possession. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 27.
