TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A man has been arrested in connection to a deadly shooting that happened on Normandy Boulevard back in September.

The investigation revealed that on Sept. 7, Gibson along with other suspects committed a robbery against three adult male victims. During the robbery one of the victims was shot and later died from his injuries.

A stolen 2019 Honda Accord was identified as the vehicle used by Gibson and the other suspects during the robbery. That vehicle was later found at a home in Midway where evidence was found linking its involvement to the homicide.

A search warrant was also obtained for Gibson’s home, where one of the weapons used in the shooting was found.
