Rome police say an Atlanta musician who goes by Bandit Gang Marco intentionally gave them wrong information during the investigation into the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man, according to Floyd County Jail reports.

According to reports:

Jamarco Montae Gibbs, 24, of 529 Magnolia St., concealed the identity of a suspect in the murder of Travious Floyd, who was shot in downtown Rome during the early morning hours of May 24.

Gibbs was performing at The Peach that night.

Lt. Rock Pace said Gibbs was one of the people police spoke to during the early part of the investigation, which he said is still ongoing. Gibbs was detained at the scene and later released.

Gibbs is charged with felony false statements or writings, as well as misdemeanor willful obstruction of law enforcement officers. He is being held on $5,700 bond.

According to police, the suspect stepped out of a black Dodge Challenger RT with light-colored stripes, firing several times at a crowd on West Fifth Avenue near Tribune Street.

The shooter struck Floyd, who was found in front of the Historic Floyd County Courthouse, 101 W. Fifth Ave. Floyd died at the hospital less than 30 minutes later.
