Malik Keyshawn Gibbs of Wilkesboro Surrendered Himself for Arrest
Boone, NC – Malik Keyshawn Gibbs of Damascus Church Road in Wilkesboro, NC, surrendered himself for arrest on Monday morning, January 30, 2023. The arrest stems from the shooting that occurred on West King Street in August of 2022. Mr. Gibbs met lead Detective Dennis O’Neal at the Watauga County Magistrate’s Office with his attorney. Mr. Gibbs was served with a True Bill of Indictment charging:
Mr. Gibbs received a $75,000.00 secured bond and was placed in the custody of the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center. Mr. Gibbs was issued a court date of March 6, 2023, in Watauga County.
I would like to thank those members of Mr. Gibbs’ family who worked to make this peaceful surrender happen and his attorney Mr. Clark Fisher for his role in the process. Operations were ramping up to intensify the search for Mr. Gibbs but certainly this was the preferred outcome. I am grateful to our dedicated staff of detectives who have worked on this case every week since the incident occurred. ~ Chief Andy Le Beau
