EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A man is facing a murder charge in an Evansville shooting from August.

Evansville Police say a man known as “Big Truck” shot and killed Trey McGillicudy.

Police say they’ve identified that person as Brandon Artis.

The shooting happened in late August on Ravenswood Drive near South Benninghof.

Police say a witness even saw the shooting happen.

According to an affidavit, a witness says McGillicudy was a weed dealer and sold weed to Artis.

Police say after McGillicudy was shot the suspect held a woman at gunpoint and stole bags of weed and thousands of dollars in cash.

That woman was later identified as McGillicudy’s girlfriend, Sessily Bruner.

Bruner says she’s relieved to know someone has been arrested, but she’s still living in the home where it happened, and is still scared.

“I’m just worried cause of the situation period,” Bruner said. “It makes you nervous. Nothing’s been right since Trey left. It’s never going to be right. It’s just a constant feeling of, ‘what next.’”

Police arrested Artis last week on drug dealing and gun-related charges.

He’s being held in jail without bond, and is due back in court Thursday.
