BRPD: Man linked to 2016 murder arrested
BATON ROUGE - A man arrested Sunday has been accused of getting rid of a weapon tied to a murder that occurred in 2016.
According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, a man was detained early Sunday morning after officers were dispatched to the 6200 block of Airline Highway in reference to a disturbance call. Upon arrival, authorities say the man fled the scene, ran several blocks, but was soon detained.
BRPD identified the man as 24-year-old Broderick Gibson of Baton Rouge. Gibson has had a warrant out for his arrest for nearly two years, connecting him to a man accused of murdering Raymond Bailey in 2016.
Officials say on July 26, 2016, Dmarcus Young shot Bailey multiple times. Bailey died at the hospital two days later. Young was charged with second-degree murder.
According to the affidavit, Young gave Gibson the murder weapon; further investigation revealed that Gibson had gotten rid of the gun. A warrant was issued for Gibson's arrest in December of 2016.
Gibson was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on April 22, 2018 and charged with obstruction of justice, accessory after the fact, and principal to second-degree murder.
