Police were called the night of Dec. 21, 2019 to investigate a "shooting call." Officers found Gibson had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to a criminal complaint, phone records showed a phone associated with Gibson had received a call from a number connected to Alexander just before the shooting.

One month after the shooting, the complaint states detectives spoke to Alexander. He said the shooting was a "self-defense" situation and that he was supposed to get weed. He had negotiated a price with Gibson over the phone, per the complaint, but "Gibson changed the price."

When Alexander approached Gibson's car, the complaint states he believed "Gibson was acting like he had a gun" and that "he was in fear of being shot by Gibson."
