Clemson Police are looking for an armed and dangerous suspect who is wanted for Murder, Attempted Murder, Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Violent Crime and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon.
According to Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon, Jaron Lamont Gibbs, 23 is wanted for shooting two men in the head after an argument over money around 12:30 p.m.
The report states that the victims and Gibbs met at the intersection of Issaqueena Trail and Cambridge Dr. in Clemson. The victims pulled up behind Gibbs’ car at the intersection after having previously called him asking about an undisclosed amount of money from a previous encounter.
Gibbs exited his vehicle and walked up to the driver’s side window of the victim’s car, pointing a pistol at the driver’s head. The driver then pushed Gibbs’ hand away as he fired one shot, which grazed the driver’s head and hit the passenger.
Gibbs then got back into his vehicle and left the scene.
