Though Murray police are still waiting for ballistic reports to help them piece together what prompted the shooting deaths of two teens, search warrants made public this week reveal a few more details about how Andrew Nelson and Ashton Peck died.
Nelson, 15, and Peck, 13, were both found injured with single gunshot wounds at Nelson's home at 859 W. Potomac on Sept. 7.
The two boys were spending Saturday evening together when Nelson's mother and stepfather Tammy and Jack Bridwell went out for no more than an hour Saturday night, leaving both boys home alone. When they came back about 7:25 p.m., they found both boys lying shot in different parts of the house. According to a search warrant affidavit filed in 3rd District Court, Peck was found inside the entryway of the home with a gunshot wound to the chest and face. After finding the 13-year-old's body, Jack Bridwell followed a trail of blood to a back bedroom, where he found his stepson with a gunshot wound to the head, according to the affidavit.
