Shooting Suspect Arrested in Dover

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - The Dover Police Department says they have arrested one suspect in a shooting that injured a 25-year-old woman and killed a 24-year-old man nearly two weeks ago.

Police say that after pursuing lead and investigating tips, they arrested Jakeel Young, 18, of Dover, on Thursday September 4th for the August 24th shooting in the Simon Circle development.

During their investigation of Jakeel young, police learned that he possessed a .25 caliber handgun. The same handgun was recovered by Dover officers during an unrelated arrest on September 1st, 2014. Police learned through the investigation that Young fired this weapon during the Simon Circle incident, striking the 25-year-old victim in the lower body, then fled the area.

Detectives from the Dover Police Department's Criminal Investigations Unit say they are confident that there was two separate shooters during the Simon Circle incident based on ballistics evidence suggesting that the bullet that struck 24-year-old Tyson Henry was a different caliber than the .25 that was possessed by Jakeel Young.

At this time, detectives say they have developed a person of interest as the second shooter in the Simon Circle homicide and are working diligently to make an arrest.

Throughout the investigation, detectives have learned that there were over 50 people in the area when the shootings took place and are seeking more information from those persons to aid in solving this case.
