A suspect has been taken into custody in connection to the murder of a Dunkin’ manager in Philadelphia, PA over the weekend. Keith Gibson has been labeled as a serial killer, Philadelphia homicide detectives told Eyewitness News Reporter Joe Holden.
On June 8, police confirmed Gibson was taken into custody. He was wearing a bulletproof vest and was armed with a knife and loaded gun, according to CBS Local News Philadelphia.
Gibson is the suspected gunman in the fatal shooting death of 41-year-old Dunkin’ manager, Christine Lugo.
Police said in a statement that Lugo was opening the Dunkin’ located on the 500 block of West Lehigh Avenue just before 5:30 a.m. the morning of Saturday, June 5 when Gibson fatally shot her during a robbery.
According to CBS Local News Philadelphia, after the Dunkin’ shooting, Gibson shot and critically wounded a 19-year-old in Wilmington and pistol-whipped a worker at a Rite Aid in New Castle.
Police reported that Gibson killed his own mother back on Feb. 8, and on May 15 he killed an employee at a T-Mobile store in Elsmere, Delaware.
“He definitely knew what he was doing. This was something that he seemed like he did before and he was just very calm and cool about it,” Dunkin’ security guard Michael Bahm told CBS Local News Philadelphia.
Gibson is currently charged with first-degree robbery and is being held in Delaware. A revolver that is preliminarily believed to be connected to many of shootings was recovered, reported CBS Local News Philadelphia.
