6 months later, court skipper still wanted

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that help arrest a man who skipped a scheduled plea in a drive-by shooting, then allegedly crashed a car into a northwest Spokane home early the next morning.

 Abran L. Gibson, 19, was to plead guilty in June to rendering criminal assistance for his role in a shooting in Cheney last February, but he didn't show up.

The next day, Washington State Patrol troopers say he was driving when a 2006 Hyundai Sonata crashed into a northwest Spokane home after fleeing a traffic stop about 2 a.m.

A warrant was issued for Gibson's arrest on charges that were to be dismissed had he taken the plea deal: drive-by shooting, riot and first-degree assault.

Gibson had been out of jail since April after being arrested Feb. 21; police say he was with a 17-year-old boy, Damon Morris, who allegedly shot a man's hand and is scheduled to go to trial in February.

Gibson, 6-feet-tall and 225 pounds, last gave an address in the 700 block of Hatch in Spokane.

Anyone with information on his current is asked to call 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online. Tipsters don't have to leave their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.
