Police: Delaware Teen Shot 2 Over Stolen Bike Dispute

DOVER, Del. (CBS) – Police in Delaware have arrested a 16-year-old suspect in connection with a double shooting after a dispute over a bike.

Investigators said Jaquell McDonald, 16, was arrested Monday for his alleged role in the shooting that occurred on September 19th.

The double shooting happened at about 5 p.m. at the Autumn Run Apartments on Webbs Lane in Dover.

According to investigators, the incident began as an argument between McDonald and a 27-year-old male and a 26-year-old female over the male victim’s bike. Police say the bike had been stolen on an earlier date.

Police say during the argument, McDonald allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot both victims. The male victim suffered a gunshot wound to his foot. He was taken to Kent General Hospital where he was treated for his injury. The female victim suffered a graze wound to her knee, but she refused treatment.

McDonald fled the scene but was taken into custody a week later. He has been charged with two counts of attempted murder in the first degree, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.

He is being held at the Stevenson House Juvenile Detention Facility on $52,000 secured bail.

    why is there no box to leave a comment on the story “Police Investigating Rash Of Violent Attacks In South Philadelphia” is it because you already had a rash of people trying to educate the victim there? he said the only reason he could think of that he was attacked when there were other people around, is because he was on the CELL phone? get a clue or get some guts to speak up. you know you were targeted for several reasons…1. you weren’t paying attention, 2 you were on your cell. and 3. because of your race. it’s wrong but i can’t be the only one seeing a pattern in perpetraitors and victims in these mob attacks, be they a mob of 3 or a mob of 300.

      CC, you know very well that CBS is loathe to report black-on-white crime. They don’t want the people to know there’s a race war going on.
