UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A man wanted in connection to the City of Utica's only homicide of 2012 so far, located in North Carolina, has now waived his extradition. That means U.S. Marshals will likely pick up Jamal Gadson and bring him back to Utica to face charges within the next several days. Gadson, 42, had been sought by authorities for most of the summer, following the death of Jermaine Stubbs on Lenox Ave on July 23. Originally from Brooklyn, Gadson had been living in the City of Utica for the past several years when the homicide occurred. Also known by the aliases Jemal Lateef Gadson, Jah and Jah King, he was located in Mocksville, North Carolina, staying at an aunt's house. Mocksville is a small city of about 4,000 people, police said. Police said Gadson and Stubbs were seen arguing outside the bar called 'Shots' on Varick Street around 1:30 a.m. When officers arrived at the scene, all parties had reportedly taken off. Police were then called to the 600 block of Lenox Ave, just two blocks from Varick Street for the report of shots fired, five minutes later. When officers arrived on Lenox Ave, they found Stubbs, 35, had been shot multiple times. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
