Arrest Made in Innocent Driver Homicide
Friday, April 03, 2020

An arrest has been made in the shooting of Ricky Gilbert, 62, of Titusville on February 25th 2020, after a brief vehicle pursuit on Thursday night.
 

QUANTAY DEMAURIE BYROM, 20, of Prairie Lane Apartments, Titusville, was taken into custody by police officers on Thursday night, April 2nd after a warrant had been issued for 1st Degree MURDER, and Shooting from a Vehicle. He was additionally charged with Fleeing & Eluding after he attempted to flee from police in the vehicle he was driving last night.

The investigation has revealed that BYROM was driving the Hyundai Sonata that shots were fired from during a violent shooting between two rivals in two different vehicles back in February. Mr. Gilbert was an innocent victim who had nothing to do with the feud, and was simply driving down the street when he was shot through his windshield and killed.

“We are continuing to work strong leads, and expect more arrests in this despicable crime”, said Police Chief John Lau. “Our Detectives are committed to bringing justice for the Gilbert family”.

Anyone with further information on this crime is urged to contact the Titusville Police Department, and can remain anonymous by calling CRIMELINE at 800-423-TIPS.
