Bridgewater pleads to misdemeanors after sons wounded in alleged attack

TECUMSEH – Kenneth Bridgewater, 52, of Brownville has entered pleas in a 2019 case where his two sons were wounded by gunfire during what investigators described as an armed attack of a Tecumseh residence.

Bridgewater is the father of Kolton and Levi Bridgewater, who are suspected of attempting to enter the home of Raymond Brown.

Court records say the Bridgewater sons had worked at the same place as Brown and “hard feelings” boiled over when they were laid off.

Brown told investigators he warned the brothers that he had a gun and ordered them not to come in. He said he began firing as the men entered the door.

Bridgewater entered guilty pleas to misdemeanor offenses, including criminal trespassing and assault.

The brothers are scheduled for court appearances on Aug. 30.
