DOVER, Del.- Authorities have announced the arrest of a suspect accused of fatally shooting an 18-year-old man outside a Dover apartment complex.

Dover police said that on Thursday, 44-year-old Nathan McNeill of Dover was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, second-degree assault, five counts of reckless endangering and criminal mischief. He is being held without bond in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center.

McNeill's arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred the evening of Feb. 1, at the Whatcoat Apartments on Whatcoat Drive. According to police, a group of people were sitting on the front steps of building 992 at approximately 11:24 p.m., when a dark-colored vehicle drove past them, made a U-turn and then stopped in front of the building. Police said the suspects within the vehicle then opened fire on the group before fleeing the area.

According to police, 18-year-old Imeer Waddell of Dover was shot in the head and transported to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, where he later died as a result of his injury. A second victim, a 19-year-old man, was reportedly shot in the right arm. He was taken to Bayhealth where he was treated and released.

Police said the criminal investigation revealed that McNeill was the suspect responsible for shooting both victims.
