CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The man suspected of shooting two Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers and a 10-year-old girl Sunday was supposed to make a court appearance Tuesday, but never did.

Channel 9 has learned that Brandon Brewer is on suicide watch.

Brewer’s sister was in the courtroom awaiting her brother’s appearance, but it never happened.

He remains held on $850,000 bond.

Channel 9 heard for the first time the chaos surrounding Su
nday’s shooting as residents of the northeast Charlotte neighborhood scrambled to call 911 after they said Brewer started firing.

A woman, who Channel 9 identified as Marguerite Jackson, can be heard telling the 911 operator how it all started.

“I was pulling up to my driveway and she was like, ‘Ma’am, can I please use your phone, because he’s threatening to shoot me and my daughter,’ so he told me, he was like, ‘going in the house, you better not let her use your phone,’” she told the 911 operator.

Jackson said Brewer went inside and came back out with a shotgun.

“He shoot it towards my direction, towards like her. I don't know. He just aimed it and shot. I have my two kids with me,” Jackson said on the 911 call.

Channel 9 also learned what 10-year-old Shanise Laney and her siblings said they did after Brewer knocked on their door asking for a cigarette and then got irate.
