Two men were recently found guilty of the 2019 robbery and murder in Quincy.
On November 17, 2019, Karlos Campbell, 57, was shot and killed on Lincoln Street as he sat in a vehicle with a female victim, who was also shot multiple times but survived and a male victim who was not injured.
A statement from State Attorney Jack Campbell’s office says it was later determined the shooting happened during a failed robbery attempt.
According to court documents the following occurred:
Karlos Campbell was driving the van of the actual intended target of the robbery, which was later confirmed by and testified to by cooperating co-defendants in the case.
Law enforcement was able to obtain statements from Vornell Davis, 29, and Tyrell Jackson, 24.
Both attempted to establish alibis for the time and location of the killing.
However, their text communications and location information from their cell phone records showed that not only were they not at their alibi locations.
Cell phone data was also consistent with being at the location of the killing.
Davis and Jackson were both sentenced life in prison by Judge Ronald Flury.
Davis is facing more robbery and gun charges in connection to an August 2019 home invasion.
Two more suspects are still awaiting trial in connection to the case.
Damion Gaymon, 25, and Jakeem Kelly, 23, are both charged with first-degree murder and two counts of first-degree attempted murder.
Gaymon is also charged with possession of a weapon by a delinquent.
The case was investigated by the Quincy Police Department with assistance from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s crime scene and laboratory analysts and the digital forensic unit of the Tallahassee Police Department.
