Detectives assigned to the Area 5 Major Investigations Division have charged a second man following the shooting death of GC Foster College’s vice principal, 55-year-old Gibbs Williams, on Mega Way in Portmore, St Catherine, on October 6.
Forty-year-old Odane Watson, otherwise called ‘Shortman’, of Duff Street, Kingston 13, was charged with murder, aiding and abetting robbery with aggravation, being a participant in a criminal organisation, making use of a firearm to commit a felony, possession of prohibited firearm and unauthorised possession of ammunition.
Five days prior, charges were laid against Watson’s alleged accomplice, Jerome Hayles.
Reports are that about 12:15pm, Williams was in the process of leaving a hospital complex when he was attacked by the suspects and shot. The police were alerted, and he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Following an investigation, Watson was arrested and charged after he was interviewed in the presence of his attorney on October 17.
His court date is being finalised and his other accomplices are currently being sought by the police.
