The preliminary hearing was continued for the 32-year-old Columbus man charged in the July 20 shooting on Pembrook Court, according to court records.

Andre Demetrius Dixon, one of two men police have linked to Johann Gamble's death, was originally scheduled to face his murder charge early Saturday in Columbus Recorder's Court. After having his hearing continued twice, the defendant is now set to appear before the judge 8 a.m. Friday.

Columbus Police said Gamble was gunned down in front of his two young daughters Jan. 20 at his 3807 Pembrook Court residence.

Authorities were called to the residence around 9:36 p.m. that night and found the father of two suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso. He was transported to Columbus Midtown Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to the back later that night at 10:19 p.m.

Police said they have linked Dixon and 27-year-old Jeremy Bernard Dixon to the crime. Officials have yet to comment on how they were allegedly involved or the motive behind the crime.

Authorities said they are still hunting for Jeremy Bernard Dixon, who has a murder warrant out for his arrest. He is black man who is 5-foot-7 tall and weighs 167 pounds.

Officials said the wanted murder suspect is considered armed and dangerous and anyone who has any information concerning his whereabouts should call 9-1-1 or Sgt. Michael Dahnke at 706-225-4296.
