Altercation Leads to Death and Arrest

A Gadsden man is behind bars in connection to the death of another man. Gadsden Police Sergeant John Hallman says on July 19th of this year, Quinton Baker and Andrew Thomas were involved in a fight in the 1000 block of Tuscaloosa Avenue.

The altercation caused Thomas to have a seizure. A Gadsden Police officer was flagged down and medics were called. They took Thomas to a local hospital where he later died. Thomas’ body was taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for an autopsy, where they determined he had died from injuries sustained during the fight with Baker.

Earlier this week, Baker was arrested and charged with Manslaughter.
