WEST REHOBOTH, Del. -Troopers have charged an 18 year old Georgetown man and are actively searching for two additional suspects in a shooting that has left an 18 year old man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg.

 The incident occurred on Friday, May 10, 2013 at approximately 7:00 p.m. as Troopers responded to the 19000 block of Duffy Street, West Rehoboth for a report of a fight at a large outdoor gathering with shots fired. Upon arrival Troopers located an 18 year old Harrington, DE man suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.

Preliminary investigation indicates that three subjects Rakeem R. Conquest-18, Derrick Sewell-23, and Precious I.Tiggs-22, arrived at the party in a vehicle and immediately got out and confronted the 18 year old victim. A physical altercation occurred between the victim and Rakeem Conquest, with Conquest producing a handgun. During the altercation the victim was able to knock the handgun from Conquest's hand. Derrick Sewell pushed the victim backwards while Precious Tiggs retrieved a second handgun from inside of the vehicle handing it to Sewell. Sewell then fired one round striking the victim in the leg. All three subjects then fled the scene in the vehicle. The 18 year old victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. (Treatment status and disposition are unknown at the time of this release.)

After further investigation and investigative leads, Troop 4 Major Crimes Detectives were able to identify and connect Conquest, Sewell, and Tiggs to the shooting. At approximately 11:20 p.m. last evening, Troopers were able to locate Conquest in Georgetown, DE where he was taken into custody without incident.

Troopers continue to actively search for Derrick Sewell and Precious Tiggs. If observed call 911 immediately.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact 911 or the Troop 4 Major Crimes Unit at 302-856-5850.
