Police Question Persons Of Interest In Murder; No Arrests

Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. – Gallatin Police said they are continuing to search for leads in their first murder in three years after questioning of two persons of interest did not lead to any arrests.

Police said Tony Woods and Keanthony Dillard came in for questioning on their own Thursday night. Police talked to them about the shooting death of Rameon Wilson, but neither man was arrested. 

Wilson was shot and killed at Greenwood Apartments on the night of April 15. Police said the murder marked the first homicide in Gallatin in nearly three years.

"This is the first homicide we've had since August 2010," said Officer Bill Storment.

The 22-year-old was shot four times in the head, according to police.

"It does appear to be personal. Obviously we believe there is some gang related activity surrounding this shooting and another one that happened the same night," said Storment.

Even with a $1,000 dollar reward for information leading to the person responsible, Gallatin Police had a hard time finding any leads in the case.

"A vehicle description, a car tag, some piece of information that might help us put the pieces of the puzzle together and lead us to the person responsible for this homicide," said Storment.

Frank Figgins said Gallatin is home for his family and having a person who would shoot someone four times in the head on the loose is not comforting.

"A lot of people have families and small children here and nobody wants to be a victim," said Figgins.

He said now is the time for people who know something to come forward before the first homicide in three years, becomes the first of many.

"It's pretty selfish not to come forward to give families and victims peace and justice for someone bring harm to their loved ones," said Figgins.

If you have information on Rameon Wilson's murder, you're asked to call Gallatin Police.
