Daniel Redman was only five days into his supervised release from a Florida prison when he allegedly shot and killed his younger brother before breaking into a home, beating a woman, and holding her hostage.

Police in Citrus County, Florida, responded to reports of a shooting on January 14, 2022, where they reportedly found 19-year-old Brenden Redman laying in a driveway and suffering from gunshot wounds. According to a Facebook post from the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, witnesses identified Daniel Redman, the victim’s older brother, as the alleged shooter.

Police used a tracking K-9 to find the man, who had broken into a nearby motorhome to hide.

The resident of the motorhome, 42-year-old Sherry Potulsky, told the Citrus County Chronicle that Daniel Redman burst through her door and punched her when she told him he needed to leave. He reportedly held his hand over her mouth for several minutes to keep her quiet as police descended on the scene.

Redman released Potulsky when confronted by police, but he reportedly refused to follow commands and was shot once by officers when he allegedly reached for his waistband.

Meanwhile, Brenden Redman was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead from his injuries. Daniel Redman was taken to a different hospital where he had surgery and was listed in critical condition.

Daniel Redman was set to serve four months on parole following his January 9 release from prison. He found himself incarcerated after a May 2019 incident in which he knocked his 68-year-old step grandfather to the ground and then kicked him repeatedly in the face. That night, Redman also shoved his grandmother into the wall and took her phone when she tried to call police. His ire then turned towards his brother, who was then a juvenile, when he pushed him and took his phone as well, according to a police affidavit.

Daniel Redman was formally charged for the premeditated murder of his brother on February 11, and he also faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, shooting/throwing a deadly missile into dwelling/conveyance, burglary with battery, and kidnapping with intent to commit/commission any felony.

He is expected to be arraigned on March 2.
