On Sunday, June 20th, 2010 at around 1:00 A.M., a homicide by shooting
occurred in the 800 block of Florida Boulevard, during which train
conductor Fred Gibbs was shot to death during an attempted armed
robbery. During the course of the investigation Homicide Detective
Orlando Matthews developed Byron Ross (B/M 06-12-1987) as a suspect
and obtained a warrant for his arrest. Detective Matthews, with the
assistance of the Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office, located,
apprehended and arrested Mr. Ross at a motel in the 3200 block of
Jefferson Highway. During the apprehension, a JPSO Detective was shot
by Mr. Ross through the door, striking him in his bulletproof vest,
causing non life-threatening injuries. The handgun used in the
homicide was also recovered, which was discovered to be stolen. Mr.
Ross is currently being held in Jefferson Parish for attempted murder
of a police officer as well as for possession of stolen property, and
will be extradited to New Orleans on a future date.

Additional information on this arrest and/or subsequent prosecution
can be obtained via the Docket Master at www.opcso.org.
