LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Three Lawton men were charged in the shooting death of Joshua Whitehead.

Lawton Police Detective Nancy Lombardo, the department’s public information officer, announced Monday that 18-year-old Malike Deandre Gibson, 19-year-old Keith Devon Dubose and 24-year-old Andrew Jordan Gaines were charged in connection to Whitehead’s death and a shooting incident on Jan. 7.

During the on-going investigation, detectives worked with the LPD Gang Unit and other officers to develop the three suspects and piece the series of events together.

All three suspects were arrested last week on un-related charges and have now transferred to the Comanche County Detention Center.

Police saw Gaines in a vehicle around the 2300 block of Northwest 38th Street on the night of Jan. 15 and turned their patrol vehicle around to do so. Gaines, Gibson, Dubose and a fourth man saw the officers and tried to run away. Gaines and Gibson were arrested that night, and Dubose was arrested the next day.

Joshua Whitehead, 26, was found shot to death in a car that had gone through Fort Sill’s fence near Northwest 40th Street and Rogers Lane. Police found shell casings near Northwest 40th Street and Ozmun Avenue.

Malike Gibson was charged with second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree robbery and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

Keith Dubose was charged with accessory to murder, two counts of first-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

Andrew Gaines was charged with accessory to murder, assault with a deadly weapon, accessory to assault with a dangerous weapon and three counts of possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
