Two men were arrested this morning and charged with the November 2015 shooting death of 19- year-old Elvin Kimble, Acting Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri and Trenton Police Director Ernest Parrey Jr. announced.

Jermaine Johnson (DOB 12.25.75), of Parkway Avenue, Ewing, was taken into custody Friday morning at his residence by members of the Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force. Gary M. Spears (DOB 7.8.82), of Dickinson Street, Trenton, was taken into custody Friday morning at a relative’s home in Trenton by members of the Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Both men are charged with murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon. Bail for each was set at $1 million dollars.

The charges are a result of an investigation by prosecutor’s Detective Nancy Diaz and the MCHTF.

At approximately 12:40 a.m. on November 24, 2015, Trenton police responded to Chestnut and Rusling streets on a report of a shooting in progress. Officers found multiple spent shell casings in the area and several vehicles struck by gunfire. A few hours later, around 6:15 a.m., police were called back to the area when a resident reported a bullet hole in a parked car. While there, a citizen approached the officers to report a deceased male partially obstructed by a parked van behind a Division Street house. The victim, identified as Kimble, suffered a single gunshot wound to the back.

Despite having been charged, every defendant is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
