Man indicted on complicity charge in shooting

Gibbs has seven pending court cases

RICHMOND — A Richmond man who is well-acquainted with the Madison County court system was indicted Wednesday on a charge of complicity to first-degree assault in a December shooting.

Tyler Gibbs, 20, of Edwards Lane, could serve 10 to 20 years in prison if he is convicted of the charge.

The new indictment adds to the numerous charges Gibbs faces in four other felony cases and two misdemeanor cases currently pending in Madison Circuit and District courts.

Gibbs is accused of “aiding and assisting” two other unknown men in the Dec. 7 shooting of 27-year-old Jacob Newman near Central Court, according to a Richmond Police Department report and the indictment.

A resident called 911 when he found Newman, who had been shot twice in the back, on his front porch.

Newman said he had been walking on the nearby railroad tracks when he was approached by three men. He identified Gibbs as one of his assailants.

In a different case, Gibbs is accused of participating in an armed robbery that occurred in March on O’Roark Avenue.

Three people reported being approached by four armed men who stole several items from them, including two handguns and more than $1,100 in cash, according to the RPD.

Gibbs was charged in connection with the December shooting after he was incarcerated in the March robbery case.

Also when he was arrested in March, Gibbs was served with several outstanding arrest warrants on the charges of third-degree terroristic threatening, menacing, harassment, two counts of second-degree fleeing and evading police, carrying a concealed weapon, tampering with physical evidence and failure to appear.

Police allege all these crimes occurred from January to March of this year.

One of Gibbs’ ongoing cases is from 2011 when he was still a student at Madison Central High School. He and two other teens are accused of beating and robbing another teen in the parking lot of Peddler’s Mall.

Gibbs remains in the Madison County Detention Center on a $22,000 cash bond. The victim in the shooting, Newman, also has been in the Madison County jail since Jan. 8 on charges of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, receiving stolen property (handgun) and tampering with physical evidence.
