Triple Shooting With One Death

Caleb Gabriel Gladdon, 20, was indicted on charges of first degree premeditated or felony murder with a firearm and two counts of attempted first degree premeditated or felony murder with a firearm.

One March 19, 2020, Gladdon walked into a home on North 61st Avenue, proceeded to the back of the house, and fired several shots from a 9mm handgun into a bedroom. One shot killed 20-year old Jamijah McGee on the bed. Another round hit Evonne Save, McGee’s girlfriend.

On his way out of the house, Gladdon also shot Eddie Johnson, McGee’s cousin. Surveillance footage from a nearby residence and a furniture store on Mobile Highway shows a man, meeting Gladdon’s description and attire, running from the area at the time of the shooting. Gladdon was positively identified by both surviving witnesses.

The murder charge carries a maximum penalty of either death or life in state prison without parole.
