Three people have been arrested, and one other is being sought, in the death of a Chester city councilman last week.
This comes ten days after Chester City Councilman Odell Williams was shot and killed in Chester County. Williams died November 4 at Chester Regional Medical Center after he was shot around 8:20 p.m.
Chester County Sheriff Alex Underwood said 18-year-old Christopher Moore has been arrested and charged with murder and possession of weapon during a violent crime. 25-year-old Quinton McClinton, was arrested and charged with accessory before and after the fact of a felony. Underwood said 20-year-old DeAngelo Roseboro turned himself in Friday after police said they were searching for him and one other man.
The other suspect at-large is Derrick Dickson, who Underwood said will be charged with accessory. Underwood said Dickson should be considered “armed and dangerous.”
During a press conference Friday, Sheriff Underwood said gangs have made threats since the killing. “My office, and myself, have been receiving threats from gangs and gang members,” he told reporters. “And I’m telling you right now, I am personally declaring war on gangs in Chester County. So you don’t have to look for me, I’m coming for you.” Underwood said.
He said all four men are suspected members of the Round Tree Circle gang, the same road where Williams was shot in his car last week. The car went off the road and crashed into a home.
Williams had served on the Chester council since 1997.
