MIAMI, Fl.--One of the CSRA's Most Wanted, Donald Gamble, Jr., was arrested today in Florida after the Richmond County Sheriff's Office received an anonymous tip.

Richmond County investigators received a tip that Gamble was at a store in Dade County. They contacted the Metro Dade County Sheriff's Office, which responded to the scene. Dade County did not find Gamble at the scene, but as they were leaving officers saw a man fitting his description and stopped to investigate.

Gamble gave officers a false name at first, but was taken into custody without incident at around 3 o'clock, just one hour after the initial tip was called into the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Donald Gamble, Jr., also known as "Do-Ball" or "Duvall", was wanted for the July 14 shooting death of 29-year-old Quamaine Rickman. Rickman was on his way to his morning paper route, when deputies say he and Gamble got into an argument. Gamble then shot Rickman twice. He later died at the hospital.

Rickman's close friend and eyewitness to the murder Rick Owen says he has one question for Gamble. "Why. What happened behind the car that I didn't hear. I want to know why."

Richmond County investigators had recently raised the reward for information leading to his capture to $2000, but as of now investigators say the tipster isn't asking for any compensation.

Gamble is being held at the MDCSO Jail and will be facing extradition to Richmond County.

    I don't know where the Rickman family got there information from, about donald being suspected in a previous shooting.I'm not saying that what he's accussed of is anyway acceptable but theres two sides to every coin.Rickman was not delivering any newspapers.He was [criminal accusation removed]. I've known donald for many years.he trully is not a monster.Like i said in the beginning,"there are two sides to every coin".You know, we all make choices & have choices.They both chose to be out there doing what they do.Sometimes as young black males, we don't think about how our choices are gonna affect our loved ones as far kids our mothers our fathers.ya'll don't know what happened.It's was 1 a.m.Quamaine had faults just like everyone else.we all fall short of the glory of god.I'm sorry he's gone.I'm just trying to give a hustlers point of view.

    Ms. Betty, I thank God for giving me a spirit of compassion and understanding. I write this message to you with much respect and in a spirit of humbleness; NOT loud, arguemenative, or upset. Again, my heart goes out to BOTH of the families. And I pray that God gives you the strength you need to continue your life journey. With love and kindness have I drawn thee, and a soft answer stirs away wraft, that's what my Bible tells me. May the strength and peace of God be upon you. God loves you and so do I.

So I dont want to hear nothing you have to say. So your brother got killed.A brother is a brother a son is a son My son was avery kinde and loving person.All I want is JUSTICE FOR QUAMAINE. And if that is yhat son of a ***** going to prison for the rest of his life then so well be it.As you know this is not the first time this ******* has be questioned in a shooting.He has been put in a couple of shootings.His luck just ran out.You can do dirt so long till GOD get tired oif it and he puts a stop to it.God didnt weant him to kill no one elses child.So you go on the side of the gambles and fill that im wrong for wat i say. **** u and the Gambles.This is me and the good LOrd.He know what Im goi

    My name is Angela. I am the mother of Quamaine's 9 yr old daughter. while you Lekia are worried about a grown man(your brother). My daughter (who is just a child) will grow up for the rest of her life without her father. (which she loves dearly). So it is unfortunate that this grown man felt the need to be GOD. My baby will not have her father at her graduation nor will he be there to give her away on her wedding day. Or any other day for thats important for that matter. Your brother took that from her so do me a favor, the next time you speak with him tell THAT!!!!!! Try to be the one wiping a 9yr old hurting tears off her face. Better yet be the one who is running towards her as she wakes up in her sleep crying because she misses her DADDY. TELL HIM THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
