HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The father of a murdered Madison middle school student spoke out Monday night.

He talked about the loss of his son and the 14-year-old accused of taking his son's life.

It was Michael Brown's first television interview since his son, Todd Brown, was shot and killed.

It's been just over two weeks since that deadly shooting in the hallway at Discovery Middle School in Madison.

Brown said these two weeks have been difficult for him and for Todd's entire family to deal with, especially the way Todd was killed .

"My thought is it's simple. I believe it was cold murder . My son was executed and I hope justice is served."

Madison police say both the victim and the suspected shooter were both in a gang.
