James Michel Glenn, III, is being held without bond in the shooting of a Morrow man who was out walking his dog. Police said Glenn shot the man in the face five or six times.

A warrant for murder has been obtained by detectives against 19-year-old James Michael Glenn, III, of Morrow, according to Clayton County Police Sgt. Otis Willis, III.

Glenn was already accused of aggravated assault and aggravated battery in the shooting of Morrow resident, Cliff Raymond Brannon, 57. The murder warrant was sought in the case, because Brannon died Friday at Atlanta Medical Center, because of the injuries he suffered in the assault, Willis explained.

“[Glenn] is a person of interest in reference to this case,” he added.

According to reports, Glenn confronted, and shot, Brannon five or six times in the face, while the victim was walking his dog.

The shooting occurred on a roadway in front of 2580 Stratford Lane, in Morrow, near the victim’s home.

Six shell casings and two slugs were found on the roadway, according to the police report in the case. Willis said he did not have information about the weapon that was used.

He added that he did not want to elaborate on the motive, because “it may compromise the case.”

Glenn recently confessed to the shooting, and had been charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery, Willis said.

He said, on Aug. 31, that the police department’s SWAT team and Special Operations Unit served a no-knock warrant on Mill Lake Way in Morrow, where Glenn was located.

The accused is currently in the Clayton County Jail, he said.
