UPD Lt. Michael Zdanowicz said, “He is an African American, 5-foot-11, thin build. Last known, he did have facial hair, a very short cropped hair cut.” He goes on to say, “I would consider him armed and dangerous. We do believe he was responsible for this homicide. We know that he was in possession of a handgun, I would assume that he still may be, so people should use extreme caution if they’re dealing with him.” Police say Gadson, who has an extensive criminal history, fled the area in a red-colored, 2001, 2-door, Chrysler Seabring. They believe he may be hiding downstate.

Stubbs was shot and killed Monday, July 23rd,  on Lenox Avenue in Utica. Investigators say an argument between several people at Shots Bar on Varrick Street led to the shooting after it moved to Lenox Ave. Anyone with information is asked to call UPD’s Criminal Investigation Division at (315) 223-3510.
