Jaruthh Gathings' cash bond set at $250,000 in homicide case

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Bond in the trial of Jaruthh Gathings has been set at $250,000. 

Gathings is charged in the homicide death of 33-year-old Mario Granville, who was shot and killed while driving near 91st and Appleton on March 8.

The Milwaukee County medical examiner found that Granville had been shot in the chest, flank, abdomen, forearms and thighs, with 10 separate bullets. The cause of death was determined to be from these wounds, and the manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Investigators say physical evidence suggests that the shooter was in the passenger seat of the Jeep at the time of the shooting. 

Video recovered from the area shows the victim's Jeep stopped at a gas pump prior to the shooting. A car pulls in, stops at a nearby pump, and a man who appears to be Gathings gets out of the car and gets inside the Jeep. Moments later, a second man from the other car slowly approaches the Jeep from behind, then suddenly rushes up to the driver's door. At this time, the Jeep accelerates quickly onto Appleton Avenue and eventually crashes into the light pole.

Detectives learned that Gathings is currently on DOC extended supervision and currently has an ankle bracelet which shows his exact location. They say GPS data puts Gathings at this location at the time of the crash and shows him move from the crash site across the street, and eventually to an Urgent Care facility.

Gathings' next scheduled court appearance is a preliminary hearing on April 12.
