Woman has gun pulled on her after she told police about a shooting.
Reported by: Amy Tortolani
A Jacksonville woman tells police what she knows about a shooting. The very next day, one of the suspects put a gun to her head fbecause she gave investigators information. We are not identifing the woman because three other suspects are still on the lose.
The crime happened April 20th in the three thousand block of Nolan, on the city's West side. Police say Tocoery Jamel Gibbs, paid the woman a visit. At that time while pointing a gun to her forehead he said, " I got a 45 for that police (explitive)." Investigators say he then moved the gun to the sides of her head. Last night Gibbs was arrested.
Ken Jefferson, JSO Public Information Officer, told us they plan to throw the book at Gibbs. They hope it lands right between his eys and he gets as much time as the law will allow.
Gibbs is now facing aggravated assult with a deadly weapon.
We asked police how they can protect people when they do come forward with information. They say by making arrests.

These dirtbags have to be stopped. I will not hesitate to be a good witness because I can protect myself. Unfortunately many people are scared of scenarios just like this and they either don't have the means or sense to be self sufficient with their own protection.

JSO (Jacksonville Sherifs Office) is not exactly the greatest. Underfunded/mismanaged for way too long they are just hanging on trying to safe the few "islands" they still control. Its sad as they have some great and dedicated officers :-(
Also had a drive by shooting with 5 people hurt this week.

Just aggravated assault? How about witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and maybe some federal civil rights violations while they are at it...

A long time argument has been, about showing the addresses of witnesses and claimants on the forms that all go to the accussed.
One case I know of, two guys robbed a store and one them shot the clerk as they were leaving, so there was no witness. The one who did the shooting was caught. All 4 Witnesses were listed on the court info, etc. along with addresses... (accusers atty's have a right to talk to them prior to the trial). Well , # 1 gives the list to # 2 guy. # 2 guy, goes to each address, knocks on the door, then asks the person answering the door if they were XXXXXXX , if it was, he shot and killed them. Now, 3 left. He goes to house # 2, now only 2 left. Goes to house # 3.... now 1 left.
Someone, sees this sequence of calls .... and it hits them what is going on. He gets to house # 4..... and the Police close in and arrest him.
If he would have driven a little faster... there would have been no witnesses and no case. Here, several times.... witnesses have changed their story once on the stand... to say they never told the Prosecutor that, or had lied, they hadn't really seen anything.
