Troopers with the Delaware State Police have arrested three people after one of them allegedly fired several bullets at two men.
The incident began at approximately 11 p.m. Aug. 5 in the unit block of Central Drive, Felton, said police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.
Detectives determined one of the men had been walking along Central Drive when a verbal exchange began between him and several people near a house. As the man and his father, who he had met at the intersection of Central Drive and South DuPont Highway, began to drive away, they heard two shots. Looking back, they spotted one of the people, later identified as Natasha Teague, 25, firing at them. The men later found two bullet holes in their vehicle, Fournier said.
After reporting the event to Delaware State Police, detectives were granted a search warrant at the residence. The Special Operations Response Team assisted in the execution of the search warrant and took Teague and two other individuals, identified as Ronette T. Powell, 32, and Frederick L. Marker, 29, into custody without incident.
During the search, detectives located a fully loaded 9mm pistol along with two magazines and more than 70 rounds of ammunition. The pistol, found in a bedroom occupied by Powell, had the serial numbers scratched off, rendering them unreadable.
Marker was arrested after police found he was in possession of three grams of marijuana.
Powell was charged with possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and possession of a weapon with an obliterated serial number. She was released from custody after posting a $5,000 secured bond.
Teague faces the same charges as well as two additional counts of first-degree reckless endangering. She was jailed at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution, New Castle, in default of a $63,000 secured bond.
Marker was issued a criminal summons for possession of marijuana.
