Gunman In Doe B Murder Case Charged

Written by Greg Moskovitch on December 31, 2013

Police in Montgomery, Alabama have charged Jason McWilliams, a 25-year-old man who turned himself into Montgomery Police Department this weekend, with capital murder following a shooting at the Centennial Hill Bar & Grill which ended in two deaths, including up-and-coming rapper Doe B.

On December 28th around 1:30am, police responded to a report of multiple shots fired at the Centennial Hill Bar and Grill. When police arrived they found 22-year-old Doe B, real name Glenn Thomas and 21-year-old Troy University student Kimberle Johnson suffering gunshot wounds.

Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene, while Thomas, a father of two who was awaiting the arrival of his third child, was taken to Baptist Medical Center South where he was later pronounced dead. Six additional victims also suffered gunshot wounds on the scene and were taken to hospital.

As WSFA 12 News reports, police say the motivation behind the shooting was initially unknown but further investigation indicated it was the result of an ongoing feud between McWilliams, who is being held at the Montgomery County Detention facility without bond, and Thomas.

Following the shooting, Montgomery mayor Todd Strange ordered the Centennial Hill Bar & Grill, which has previously been the site of violent homicides and the subject of multiple cautions from the city, shut down as a function of a city order, labelling it an “imminent threat to the public’s safety.”
