HOOVER— The U.S. Marshals arrested 23-year-old Kareem Dacar Gaymon Oct. 30 and charged him with the Sept. 5 murder of Xavier Beasley, according to an Oct. 31 report.



The report states that detectives recently uncovered new evidence that lead to an arrest warrant being issued by the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office for the Fultondale resident.

Gaymon was arrested by the U.S. Marshals at 3:30 p.m. as he arrived for work at the Sam’s Club on John Hawkins Parkway in Hoover. The report states that Gaymon did not resist and was transported to the Hoover City Jail.

Beasley, an employee of the Home Depot on U.S. 280, was ambushed and shot multiple times as he left work Sept. 5. The suspect was a co-worker of the victim at the time of the attack.

Gaymon allegedly left work two hours before Beasley and then returned, waiting on the victim in the parking lot.

The release states that a team of detectives has been working on this case daily since the incident, receiving a “significant break” on Wednesday, Oct. 28 that lead to Gaymon’s arrest Oct. 30.

Gaymon is being transferred to the Shelby County Jail where he will be held on a $1 million bond. Murder is a Class A felony. If convicted, Gaymon could spend up to life in prison.

Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Sgt. Keith Czeskleba at 739-6795.
