By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Utica Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating the suspect from Monday's homicide on Lenox Ave.

Authorities have identified the suspect as Jamal Gadson, 42, originally from Brooklyn but living in the City of Utica for the past several years. Police said Gadson has no current address and it is believed that he may have been staying with someone locally.

Gadson, who police said has been known to use the aliases Jemal Lateef Gadson, Jah, and Jah King, is described as 5'11", 145 pounds and was last seen driving a red, 2001 Chrysler Sebring, 2 door sedan.

It is believed that Gadson is responsible for the shooting death of Jermaine Stubbs, 35, of Utica Monday night on Lenox Ave.

Police say Gadson and Stubbs were seen arguing outside the bar called 'Shots' on Varick St. around 1:30 Monday morning. 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 police arrived to that scene, Stubbs was found shot multiple times.

Jermaine Stubbs was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said Gadson should be considered armed and dangerous.

If you know where he is, you are asked to call 315-223-3510. All calls may be kept confidential.
