Man faces attempted murder charges

A Banks man was indicted by a Pike County Grand Jury last week and now faces charges of attempted murder.

Brandon Wade Bundy, an 18-year-old white male, will now face trial after he allegedly attempted to murder a local woman in July 2008.

According to court documents, Crystal Culpepper filed a witness statement making the allegations against Bundy.

“I pulled into Manis Pittman’s second drive. Brandon Bundy pulled into the first driveway,” the witness statement read. “He pulled a pistol out of his car window and shot at me inside my car seven to eight times.”

Culpepper further stated she had received cuts from the car windows, and she believed her life was in danger.

“I finally got away and came straight home. I was afraid for my life,” Culpepper said in her witness statement.

No trial date has been set at this time.
