Gville murder suspects facing additional charges

The two suspects in the murder of a Gwinnett County teenager in Gainesville in April are now facing additional charges in the case.

Quaran Jamir Jackson, 18, and Ja’quez Jeremiah Sims, 19, have been charged by the GBI with Participation in a Criminal Street Gang. Jackson faces two such charges and Sims is charged with three counts. In addition, Gainesville Police have also now charged Jackson with Tampering with Evidence.

They were arrested earlier this month on the murder charges in the death of 16-year-old Jaishawn Overstreet at Ridgecrest Apartment.  Overstreet died two days after the April 27 shooting.
