The 21-year-old who died of a gunshot wound Monday night near Gantt was remembered Tuesday as an outgoing person who was always with family or friends.

Brady Dillon Page, 21, of Andalusia, was pronounced dead at a residence on the Gantt Red Level Road on Monday evening, Covington County Sheriff Dennis Meeks said.

Page was a 2014 graduate of Straughn High School.

“He loved football and was on the football team,” said Shea Worley, his aunt. “Brady was an outgoing person that loved his family and friends. He hardly ever was he alone. He spent most of his time with his girlfriend, Jenna Scruggs from McKenzie. Brady was a young man that always had a smile. He was so full of life.”

Worley said Page was the son of Chris Page and Jennifer Hope Bradshaw. He had two younger siblings, Macey Griggs and Bodie Griggs.

Meeks said his department was called to the scene at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Meeks told the Star-News at the scene that the man’s body was found inside the home.

Meeks said Tuesday that Page was lying on the floor in a bedroom with injuries from an apparent gunshot wound.

Covington County Coroner Norman Hobson pronounced Page dead at the scene, Meeks said.

No arrests have been made in the case, Meeks said Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office, Gantt Police Department and district attorney’s office continue to investigate the shooting.

Meeks said that the body has been transported to the department of forensic sciences for an autopsy.
