UPDATE: 11:15 a.m.

Chino Valley Police arrested Dale Edward Gibson, 51, of Chino Valley Wednesday night on charges he shot and killed James W. Brooks, 47, also of Chino Valley.

Police booked Gibson into Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde on one count of First Degree Murder.

Chino Valley Police Cmdr. Mark Garcia said based on information at the scene and from a witness to the shooting, officers determined that Gibson and Brooks were involved in an argument.

Gibson allegedly then went inside the residence in the 800 block of West Road 1 South, got a handgun, and shot Brooks, killing him instantly.

Garcia said Brooks, Gibson and several other people, identified as roommates, have shared the residence in Chino Valley for the past several years.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for the home and were working at the scene on Thursday morning.

According to Cmdr. Mark Garcia, the Chino Valley Police have one suspect in custody in connection to Wednesday night's shooting on W Road 1 South.

"We have one suspect in custody at this time. The suspect is an acquaintance of the victim. I am confident in saying that we are not looking for any additional suspects."

Garcia said that CVPD detectives are waiting on a warrant to search the property, and will continue the investigation throughout the night. The department is working from a mobile command center that was set up at the scene approximately one hour after the shooting, which occurred at approximately 6:25 p.m. Garcia said further processing of the crime scene will take place after sunrise Thursday morning and he will provide additional information as it becomes available.

Garcia added that both the suspect and victim are adults, but declined to provide further details pending notification of family members.

"We have spoken to friends and acquaintances of the victim, but have not been able to reach any family members yet," said Garcia.


The Chino Valley Police Department responded to a 911 call reporting a gunshot wound in the 800 block of W Road 1 South at approximately 6:25 p.m. Wednesday.

According to CVPD commander Mark Garcia, officers arrived at the scene to find one person dead as the result of a gunshot wound.

"We are working a crime scene at this time involving one person who is deceased," Garcia said from the scene. "It appears at this time that the victim suffered a gunshot wound, but at this time we are at the very beginning stages of the investigation, so we cannot release any further information. We have not identified the victim or notified any next of kin."

Garcia said CVPD detectives are interviewing three persons who witnessed the incident, all three of whom are residents of the home where the shooting took place.

"At this time we do not believe there is any additional threat to the community," said Garcia.
