Yes, it's true....as far as I know it was Shawn Gibson. They said he shot himself at Blue Hole in his vehicle. I pray for his family.

I heard that Shawn Gibson took his own life today. I would assume this is the young man in question.

Shannon Gibson was involved with the beating death of his father Donnie. Shawn was apparently troubled, but he was a good boy. Prayers for the family. So sad.

His name is Donnie Shawn Gibson. Great guy...must have had problems no one knew about. He will be missed greatly. He did not shoot himself in his car, it was a rented car and he was a little piece away from out, outside it. Shannon Gibson is his older brother.

Shawn was a great guy, he only had the troubles that an average person did. Not really sure as to why he did this, and it has caused quite a bit of grief. Those who knew him know that he was a great man and he was awesome to be around. All I can say is that he will be missed more than he could have known, and what else can I say? He was a hell of a dude.

Shawn was a great guy, one of the best you could ever meet... I had known him since we were in like 2nd or 3rd great... he just had an over heavy load on his shoulders... he was a boy with a mans debts, after trying to pay for his father's funeral himself and all his fathers debts... Shawn will NEVER be forgotten and forever missed...

I guess we are all to blame,I never knew he had to pay for all those things, people should had took up money for him, and Donnies Church,yes he did go to church,and live right for awhile, but got back on pills, not very many church people tryed to help him.( truth is the truth) Donnie had family also. why did tey let him carry the burden himself,so sad. such a sweet kid.

ONCE AGAIN.....SHANNON DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIS FATHER'S MURDER. THE GIBSON FAMILY WOULD APPRECIATE IF EVERYONE WOULD STOP GOSSIPING ABOUT THEIR LOSSES. THEY HAVE TOO MUCH LOSS AND GRIEF TO HAVE TO READ THIS Bs.
BTW.....SHANNON WAS AT THE FUNERAL...dick

I never believed for one min.that Shanan had anything to do with Donnie's death. It was Donnie"s family that wouldn't let Shanan come to Donnie's wake & funeral,even had the cops up there.Shanan & Donnie loved each other,I saw that.Donnie was a good man & so was his kids.like I said before we are all responsible for Shawn death,A young boy should never had to pay Donnies debts.I am just so sorry.

So close friend says Shannon was at the funeral, then So Sorry says he wasn't allowed. Which is it?*I* wasn't there when Donnie was murdered, so I really don't know if Shannon was involved or not, but that was always the rumor. I do know that Shannon is not a very good person. Shawn was. And, it seems to me that "close friends" of the Gibson family, or the Gibson family themselves would/should have tried to help Shawn. He shouldn't have had to bear the burden himself. Wonder why Shannon didn't try to help? hmmmmmm
So Sorry

I was at Donnies funeral & Shannon wasn.t there.I wasn't there the 1st night,but the 2nd, he wasn,t there. I don.t know it this is true but I was told the cops,took him out the first night. I do know there were cops there the 2nd. one even had a club.Shannon,& Donnie both had problems,but they were always nice to me. Shawn always tryed to do the right thing ,he didn't deserve to have to take on all of Donnies debts.I just hope to God I never let that happen to anyone else,I would have tryed to help him if I knew.We all get so caught up in our own problems,& don't see what someone else is going thu. I hope this is a lesson to all of us.

shannon was at his brothers funeral...he wasnt allowed at his fathers' bc of the investigation. It was Donnie's "friends" who murdered him which is why shannon isnt in prison with them....
If YOU know the gibson family then YOU would know that shawn didnt talk about his problems...NO ONE knows why...btw, you have got to be one sick a-hole to say what you said...way out of line. I have known shawn, donnie, prissy, shannon since I was 10 yrs old....HOW DARE YOU........ONCE AGAIN...FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR FAMILY...STOP GOSSIPING ABOUT THIS...THEY JUST BURIED HIM..

THANK YOU for you nice comments...shannon and donnie were best friends and father and son. Donnie was all the shannon had left after his mother passed. Im just glad that there are others who KNEW the Gibson family that SAW how much they loved one another
