UPDATE: The case involving a man who was involved in a standoff with law enforcement officers in November 2017 has been continued once more.

Bladen County Assistant District Attorney Quentin McGee told the court on Monday afternoon, “In this case there are some extenuating factors.”

McGee requested the case be placed on the November case management calendar. The case will be reviewed again on November 5th, but no ruling will be made on the date according to McGee.

Defense Attorney Butch Pope seemed surprised by the move as did the Judge, Susan Gray, presiding over the case. Pope told the court his client, MacKenzie Brisson, was present and they were prepared to make a plea in the case. 

“Are you taking the plea off the table?” asked Judge Gray.

“No, your honor, not at this time,” said McGee. He added the case is a complicated one.

Judge Gray allowed the case to be placed on the November Case Management Calendar. She did not announce the exact date. 

McGee explained the case’s extenuating factors and evidence will be reviewed the during the case management hearing. The case has been on the calendar for case management about every other month according to McGee. There will be no judge ruling or pleas taken on the next scheduled court date because it is a case management date. 

Brisson barricaded himself inside a home on Paul Brisson Road on November 21, 2017 and is accused of shooting at law enforcement officers. After the shooting stopped, officers sent a robot inside the home to locate Brisson. He was found inside a pick up truck in the garage of the home. No one was injured and the standoff ended peacefully after six hours of involvement from multiple law enforcement agencies.
