FALMOUTH – Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne have released the following statement:

At approximately 10:45 AM Tuesday through a 911 call, Falmouth police officers were summoned to the address of 49 Old Main Road in North Falmouth. The 911 call indicated gun shots had been fired and a person had been shot.

Upon arrival police confronted a man with a gun in the driveway. They kept him in view outside of the house and then entered the house to look for a victim. They found a young woman in an upstairs bedroom. It was apparent she had been shot and was no longer viable for resuscitation. The victim has been identified as Kianna Barrows, 20, of North Falmouth.

Police then left the house and after a lengthy negotiation involving Falmouth Police, Massachusetts State Police, and the SWAT Team, the man surrendered and was taken into custody by Falmouth Police.

The suspect has been identified as 23-year-old Tyler James Gibbs. Police are still trying to determine his last address. The matter remains under investigation. The defendant will be brought to Falmouth District Court in the normal course of events and arraigned on a charge of first-degree murder.
