Black FedEx driver accuses two white men of chasing, shooting at him

Two white men were arrested this week after a Black FedEx driver in Mississippi accused them of chasing and shooting at him as he tried to drop off a delivery — a case that has drawn comparisons to the 2020 killing of Ahmaud Arbery.

Gregory Case and his son Brandon Case were arrested Tuesday in connection with the Jan. 24 incident. The elder Case faces a charge of conspiracy while Brandon Case is charged with shooting into a motor vehicle.

D’Monterrio Gibson, 24, accused the men of pursuing him because he is Black, and Gibson’s attorneys are asking for the men to face federal hate crime charges.

“Black drivers are afraid to deliver packages in certain neighborhoods,” Carlos E. Moore, one of Gibson’s attorneys, said at a Thursday news conference, adding that many Black delivery drivers across the country have shared similar experiences with him since the Jan. 24 attack.
