Brodie Wilkinson III, 22, was found shot dead inside his crashed truck on Highway 76 outside of Nashville, Tennessee, on October 6.

But before his murder, Wilkinson picked up his cell phone and began recording from his truck as two men got out of a white 2008 Dodge Charger - and one was holding a gun.

'In the video, you can hear the sound of a gunshot after (Wilkinson) passes and the penetration of the projectile as it entered the truck and Mr. Wilkinson,' according to an affidavit filed at the Robertson County Circuit Court Clerk's Office.

Wilkinson had reported three trespassers swimming in a creek on his family's property on October 6.

He confronted the group of two men and one women who refused to leave before Wilkinson left to call police.

Daniel Blake Scott, 28, Darick A Hinerman, 25, and Jennifer Henning, 23, were all arrested in connection with Wilkinson's death.
