Charges & Cause of Death
Gilbert, also known as Tyler Lane, was fatally shot when he confronted the accused killers for their egging prank. Reports have said that it was Maughon, who was sitting on the backside of the car, who pulled the trigger and shot him numerous times. The victim’s body was later discovered by cops in the middle of Dobbins Mill Road.
Though the trio soon fled the scene after allegedly killing Gilbert, they were all caught and taken into custody. “Investigators were able to locate a witness that provided them with information related to the shooting, and through that, they created a direct link between the victim and the suspects,” Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix said.
Maughon and Munson have been charged with murder, malice murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, battery, and criminal trespass. Davenport has been slapped with malice murder, battery, and criminal trespass. Dix noted, as reported by Law & Crime, “Because they all plotted and planned together and traveled to the location with the intent to commit a crime that led up to the murder together, they are all guilty just as if they had each pulled the trigger themselves.”
“They went to egg a house, the victim confronted them while they were doing it, he lost his life from him, and they drove off and left his body from him in the middle of the road. Together they bought that ticket; now, together, they can ride that ride,” he added.
