One suspect in Gainesville shooting still at-large
Gainesville Police are searching for the third suspect in this weekend’s fatal shooting at a downtown parking garage. GPD Corporal Angelina Valuri says two other men are in custody.
She says Artrel Dubose was shot in the head when two groups began arguing after leaving a nightclub. She says recent shootings around Gainesville are prompting city officials to look at how to improve safety.
GPD says Lake City residents Brandon Brashod and Deron Matthews are in police custody. Anyone with information about the third man’s location can contact Crime Stoppers or the Gainesville Police Department.
