Alabama men's basketball head coach Nate Oats said that he was aware of Brandon Miller's involvement in the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Jamea Jonae Harris in his press conference on Tuesday morning.

"Yeah, I mean, we've known the situation since. We've been fully cooperating with law enforcement the entire time," said Oats. "The whole situation is sad. The team closed practice with a prayer for the situation today, again, knowing we had this trial today. We think of Jamea, family, Kaine, really think about her son Kaine that was left behind, so it's sad. We knew about that. You can't control everything anybody does outside of practice. Nobody knew that was going to happen. College kids are out. Brandon hasn't been in any type of trouble nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time."

It was announced in Miles' and Davis' bond hearing on Tuesday morning that Alabama freshman forward Brandon Miller brought the gun loaded that was used to shoot and kill Harris in the early morning hours of Jan. 15.

Tuscaloosa Thread's Stephen Dethrage was at the hearing and reported about the new information regarding how Miller was involved in the case. 

"Culpepper said after the argument and just before the shooting, Miles texted Miller and asked him to bring a gun over in case the argument led to violence," wrote Dethrage. "Davis got in the backseat of Miller's Dodge Charger, Miles allegedly gave him a .40 caliber handgun with "one in the head," meaning a round was chambered and the gun was ready to fire."
