According to a statement issued by Stephens Inc., emergency responders were called to Curt Bradbury's Little Rock home about noon on Friday, where Cameron Bradbury was found with a gunshot wound to the head.

He was taken to St. Vincent Infirmary, where he underwent surgery but died about 4:30 p.m.

On behalf of the family, Curt Bradbury made the following comments: 

"Drug abuse affects all of us. Today it has impacted my family beyond anything we could ever imagine. This should be a reminder to all of us that we must re-dedicate ourselves as a society, and as individuals, to stop this national epidemic."
