WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley said in a news released police and members of the US Marshals Task Force arrested Wakeel Stewart, 18, of Wilmington around 3 p.m. at a home in the 300 block of Pine Valley Drive.
Police say around 11 a.m. on Oct. 17 Stewart and two other men, Kolton Thompson, 24, and Daiquan Jacobs, 17, fired several shots at a teen riding his bike in the 1100 block of Stewart Circle. The victim was not injured.
