Police arrest 21-year-old in Wednesday’s shooting of teen in leg

Antwon Anthony Gilbert, 21, known on the street as "Poo Man," was arrested late Thursday afternoon and charged with shooting a teenager in the leg.

The victim, Dequan Gordon, 16, was taken to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Witnesses to the shooting told detectives and a state prosecutor at the scene that Gilbert, wearing a black hoodie and black pants, pulled up to an apartment at 7550 NW 19th Ave. in a red Camry Wednesday evening.

They said he got out of the car and fired twice, then got back into the car and fired twice more. Gordon took a bullet in the leg.

Gilbert has been charged with attempted premeditated murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

In a separate incident on Wednesday evening, a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed in northwest Miami-Dade. David Goulbarne was walking along the sidewalk in front of the two-story, red-and-tan apartments at Northwest 71st Street and 14th Avenue when someone walked up and shot him. The teen stumbled into the apartment complex before he collapsed.

An arrest in that case has not been made.
