Police: Witnesses Tie Man to Jeter Killing

In court records, witnesses said they saw Naheem Adams run from Easton shooting scene, show off gun.

Three weeks before he'd become a wanted homicide suspect, Naheem Adams showed off a gun he'd just picked up.

"Me and my girl just got back from New York, and look what I got," he said.

That's according to court documents in which Easton police say witnesses have tied Adams to the death of George Jeter on July 27.

Jeter, 28, of S. 14th Street, was shot to death on the 1400 block of Butler Street. According to court documents, a witness saw Adams -- who goes by the nickname "Dot" -- fleeing the scene.

Another witness saw Adams, 20, in the vicinity of the shooting before Jeter was killed. 

Police say they recovered two small caliber shell casings from the scene. An autopsy later found two small caliber bullets inside Jeter's body.

Authorities are still looking for Adams, and have said they believe he's in New York City. In the court documents, police say that "pinging" his cell-phone showed it moving east toward New York.

Jeter was Easton's third homicide victim of 2012. In April, a man named Matthew Kelly, a 20-year-old Nazareth native, was shot and killed in the West Ward. His death is still under investigation. 

In early July, Easton resident William Thompson, 43, died after being stabbed several times on the 600 block of Ferry Street. Police have , with criminal homicide in Thompson's death.
