Last year, a Hamilton man was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 16 years for shooting Gilbert’s son, Jaraius Gilbert Jr., 13, a Wilson Middle School student.
Miquan Hubbard, 19, of Village Street, pleaded guilty in March 2019 to murder with a gun specification. Hubbard fired 15 shots across the Hamilton street on the night of Aug. 29, hitting and killing Jaraius. Another teen was also struck and recovered.
The shooting was part of ongoing gang violence in Hamilton that started with a fatal shootout at the former Doubles bar in July 2016, investigators said.
