A Georgia man was involved in a love triangle with a high school homecoming queen and now he will spend the rest of his life in prison after he killed her and shot his Army soldier romantic rival, according to authorities.

On Nov. 10, 2022, Brandon Wilson, 24, came home from the Army on Veteran’s Day and surprised his girlfriend, 17-year-old Jayne Salazar-Chavez, WAGA-TV reported.

Once at her home, investigators said Wilson thought Salazar-Chavez was withdrawn and he confronted her about possibly seeing someone else. He then found a suggestive text on her phone, so he called the person who sent it but hung up before saying anything, according to WAGA-TV.

Shortly after that, the other person, later identified as 24-year-old Nakia Dorsey, called Salazar-Chavez on her phone and argued with Wilson about which of them was actually dating the teenage girl.

The argument ended and Wilson and Salazar-Chavez left the house. When they returned later that night, Wilson told police he saw a red laser on his face and noticed a man wearing black clothing pointing a gun at his vehicle.

The gunman, police said, then opened fire, hitting the car over 20 times as Wilson was trying to drive away. Wilson was shot in the leg.

Salazar-Chavez, who was a homecoming queen and member of her school’s Air Force JROTC program, was shot in the arm and torso, and succumbed to her injuries.

Tips led detectives to Dorsey, police said. Detectives determined he was the one talking to Salazar-Chavez through social media messages. Officials said detectives also used cell phone location data to learn he was at her home right before the shooting.
