Wife Of Murder Victim Speaks Out

Tiffany Braun lost her husband and best friend of five years this week.

"I was down at the fireworks. I had my baby and I was with my friend and her two kids. And he had called, and I got a hold of him one time and he said, 'I'm fixing to get in a fight.' I said, 'No, you've got my kids. Don't fight with nobody.' And he said, 'I'm just playing. I'm on my way.' Then he hung up, and I couldn't get a hold of him anymore after that," said Braun.

According to the Harrison County Sheriff's Department, 24-year-old Christopher Ryan Braun was found shot to death Monday evening inside of his vehicle at the intersection of Canal and Landon Roads.

Deputies say they are not sure if Braun was the intended target, but they do say the shooting may have been the result of an ongoing dispute between friends.

Thomas Nelson, 29, and Austin Ryan Woodcock, 19, have been charged with murder. Braun's two young sons witnessed the whole ordeal while sitting in the back of the vehicle.

"Whenever you wrecked, what did you do or say?" Tiffany Braun asked her 5-year-old son Cole.

"Nothing. I was being quiet and being good. I was in the floorboard," Cole told his mother. "I was hiding because I didn't want to be shoot."

Cole bravely told police everything he saw. The Braun's youngest son, Collin, is just three and has not spoken a word of what he witnessed.

He, like the rest of the family, is in shock over what happened during a time when most people were celebrating independence.

"It's all just too soon. I have been going through so much and I'm not even halfway through it yet," said Tiffany Braun.  

The Brauns also have a young daughter.

An account has been set up in Christopher Ryan Braun's name to help with funeral costs. If you can help the family, you can make a donation at any Hancock Bank.
