Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne release the following:
At approximately 10:45 am, this date through a 911 call, Falmouth police officers were summoned to an address, 49 Old Main Road, North Falmouth. The 911 call indicated gun shots had been fired and a person had been shot.
Upon arrival police confronted a man with a gun in the driveway. They kept him in view outside of the house and then entered the house to look for a victim. They found a young woman in an upstairs bedroom. It was apparent she had been shot and was no longer viable for resuscitation. The victim has been identified as Kianna Barrows (DOB 11/12/01) of North Falmouth.
Police then left the house and after a lengthy negotiation involving Falmouth Police, Massachusetts State Police, and the SWAT Team, the man surrendered and has been taken into custody by Falmouth Police.
The suspect has been identified as Tyler James Gibbs (DOB 10/19/1998). Police are still trying to determine his last address. The matter remains under investigation. The defendant will be brought to Falmouth District Court in the normal course of events and arraigned on a charge of first-degree murder.
