An 18-year-old man who allegedly injured one person when he fired into an occupied house in unincorporated Vallejo during an argument on Wednesday has been arrested, according to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office. The fight that led to the shooting began around 1 p.m. Wednesday when Delvon Morrow, 18, and Juanisha Jackson, 18, were thrown out of Jackson’s mother’s house in the first block of Woodrow Avenue.
There was a verbal argument but no violence at that time, said sheriff’s Lt. Gary Faulkner. Morrow allegedly returned around 11 p.m., however, with an unidentified companion, and challenged the residents to come outside and fight. The residents reported seeing at least one of the suspects, if not both, carrying guns, and initially refused to go outside, Faulkner said. One victim tried to speak to Morrow and the other suspect through a window, though, and was slapped in the face. When that victim stepped outside the front door to confront Morrow, the unidentified suspect allegedly pulled out a gun and fired at close range, but did not hit him.
The victim turned to run as several more shots were fired, and one of the shots struck him, Faulkner said. He was treated at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Vallejo for a gunshot wound and released. Morrow and the unidentified suspect fled the scene and escaped capture. Investigators located Morrow, however, after they learned of a residence where he was known to spend time, and put it under surveillance. He was stopped in a vehicle around 3 a.m. on Thursday, and taken into custody along with Jackson. Morrow was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, conspiracy, making terrorist threats and shooting at an inhabited dwelling, and is being held without bail. Jackson was released after a brief detention, Faulkner said.
