Agmere Matthews, wanted in connection with the shooting at Bubba’s Night Club on Feb. 8, was arrested shortly after noon Feb. 20 by the Dover Police Department SAFE Streets Unit working with the Delaware State Police Governor’s Task Force, and the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force.
Matthews was taken into custody without incident, said Dover Police Department spokesman Cp. Mark Hoffman.
Although bond information was not available at the time of this press release, Matthews is expected to be charged with the same criminal counts as his alleged accomplice, Naquan Ingram.
A Dover man is on the run after being named a suspect in an early morning shooting. The incident took place at about 1:10 a.m. Feb. 8, outside Bubba’s night club, located at 865 N. Dupont Highway, said Dover Police Department spokesman Lt. Jason Pires.
Police already were in the area when they heard the shots being fired, Pires said.
Officers later learned that two men, identified as Naquan Ingram and Agmere Matthews, had gotten into a verbal altercation with a 32-year-old man inside the club, Pires said. The altercation continued outside, with several others, including Ingram and Matthews, allegedly assaulting the man before he was able to escape to his car. Ingram and Matthews allegedly fired several shots into the vehicle, but the man and his 33-year-old girlfriend were not hit.
An examination of the car showed it had been pierced by several bullets, Pires said. The man was taken to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and then released.
Ingram and Matthews fled the scene, but officers were able to get a description of their car, Pires said, and found Ingram driving it several hours later in Capital Green. Ingram was taken into custody and officers seized a .40-caliber handgun they learned had been stolen from Salisbury, Md.
Ingram, 32, of the 100 block of South Governor’s Boulevard, is charged with third-degree assault, criminal mischief, two counts of reckless endangering, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a stolen firearm.
He has been jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, in lieu of a $29,100 cash bond.
