36 Hours: From Leading Anti-Gun Violence Rally to Capital Murder Charges

“Man, that’s a brand new car,” Reverend Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow told a bystander as he was escorted over to a Dothan Police Department vehicle Sunday night. 

The car he was referencing was a 2018 Toyota Camry that was in the middle of a murder crime scene at the intersection of Lake Street and Allen Road. Glasgow indicated to the bystander that the Camry belonged to him, and the vehicle may have had damage from gunshots.

Glasgow, 52, wasn’t wearing handcuffs, but he did ride in the backseat of the DPD vehicle away from the scene. 

“We were ducked down in the car while it was happening,” Glasgow continued. 

Later in the night, the Camry would be just one of many problems for Glasgow. The same man who led a march against gun violence just 36 hours before was being charged for capital murder in a case featuring some of the worst gun violence Dothan has seen in months.

Glasgow walked Dothan’s downtown streets Saturday shouting through a megaphone about bringing change to America’s gun laws. 

The Sunday night crime scene spanned for blocks. DPD officers worked to find a number of shell casings to preserve as evidence in the case. 

The murder victim, 23-year-old Breunia Jennings, was in a wrecked Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS that had significant damage. The vehicle’s back window was shot out leaving glass all over the intersection. Just feet away was Glasgow’s Camry. 

He indicated he was a witness to the crime, and according to Dothan Police on Monday he played a major role in orchestrating it as well.

More coverage will be shared on DothanFirst.com and on WDHN News broadcasts. There are more charges in the murder case. 

Reverend Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow is the brother of well known activist Reverend Al Sharpton.
