Who was Brandon Woodard? Initial reports of Woodard’s execution-style killing in broad daylight would lead you to believe he was the victim of a random shooting in one of the country’s leading tourist districts, Midtown Manhattan.
However, the law student was very popular on the Los Angeles party scene. A graduate of a prep school, Woodard drove a Land Rover and promoted parties that were well attended by movie stars and professional athletes. He has several arrests on his record including stealing wine and assault and battery. It’s reported that he once fought with Usher’s bodyguards and later bragged about it, according to the New York Post.
