New Jersey teen arrested in Harrington shooting case from 2014

HARRINGTON – A 17-year-old juvenile, wanted since 2014 by the Harrington Police Department, was arrested March 5 thanks to help from the Delaware State Police.

Troop 5 contacted Harrington officers stating they had the 17-year-old suspect of Hamilton, New Jersey in custody during a traffic stop.  Troopers then transported the juvenile to Harrington and turned him over to officers at the Harrington Police Department.

In June of 2014, the Harrington Police Department responded to Clarks Corner Apartments for a report of an assault complaint.  When police arrived they contacted the victim and police determined that the victim was shot in his face with a BB gun.  The victim suffered minor injuries.

Police were able to identify the 17-year-old juvenile as the suspect and obtained warrants for him.  Once at the Harrington Police Department, the juvenile was processed and charged with reckless endangering in the second degree and offensive touching.  Because he is a juvenile, he was released to a family member pending a future court appearance in Kent County Family Court.
