Update: 2 Arrested in Smyrna Neighborhood Shooting

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Del. - Smyrna Police arrested a husband and wife Monday after they say the husband was involved in a neighborhood shooting and his wife hindered prosecution. 

It happened on April 18 in Sunnyside Village. 

According to police, Cardin Qualls, 28 of Smyrna, got into an argument with the victim who lives on Dairy Drive. After the argument, police said Qualls left the house and returned with a handgun, firing several rounds at the home. Then, police said Qualls took off with a small child in his car. There were no reported injuries.

Smyrna PD said they worked with neighbors and witnesses in the investigation by providing police with statements and surveillance videos. After receiving search warrants for Qualls' home and car, police said his wife, Tynequa Qualls, 30 of Smyrna, tried to prevent investigators from obtaining evidence.  

Both Cardin and Tynequa Qualls were arrested. 

Cardin Qualls was charged with possession of a firearm during a felony, reckless and child endangerment, and terroristic threatening, among other offenses.  He was arraigned and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute on a $83,100 cash only bond, pending a future court hearing. 

Tynequa Qualls was charged with hindering prosecution and resisting arrest. She was arraigned and released.
