The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says it is Rasaan Taylor. Police say the 21-year-old Samuel Gibson was inside the S&S Mini Mart on Lyell with another person on January 31. Shortly after, a group walked in and an argument took place. It escalated and shots were fired. Gibson suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body and died on the scene.
