U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Mississippi Murder Suspect

Memphis, TN – Last night, July 27, the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Sheldon Gibbs. Gibbs had warrants for his arrest out of Panola County, MS for First Degree Murder.

On July 12, 2020, L.V. Wilbourne and Jasmine Bradshaw were shot to death at the 2900 block of Hunter Chapel Road in Como, MS. Also shot but not killed were Shannon Leach, Crystal Block, Jasmine Green, and Whitney Northern. On July 20th warrants were issued for the arrest of Sheldon Gibbs for these crimes: two first degree murder warrants and four aggravated assault warrants.

Working in conjunction with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Fugitive Apprehension Team, the Multi Agency Gang Unit, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Memphis Police Patrol units and a Memphis Police K-9 unit, the fugitive was tracked to a residence at the 220 block of McLean. Gibbs was taken into custody without incident. Seven additional firearms were seized at the residence. In addition to Gibbs four other arrests were made:

  • Kenneth Carrethers - Unlawful possession of a weapon

  • Denzel Dyson - Possession of a weapon, possession of controlled substances with intent to deliver

  • Tyler Benton - Unlawful possession of a weapon

  • Aryanna Morris - Traffic charge

U..S. Marshal Tyreece Miller had the following comment: “This collaborative effort by the Marshals Service and our local and federal law enforcement partners shows our commitment and resolve to remove dangerous individuals from the streets. This should serve as a reminder that you can’t commit a crime in Mississippi and think you can run and hide in Memphis.”
