On October 9, 2022 at approximately 2123 hours, I was dispatched to [900 BLOCK] Old Sunbury Road Lot [REDACTED] in reference to someone trying to fight the complainant and her friend. The complainant later stated a group of people were fighting and then she heard three shots and then one shot. Upon arrival, I made contact with Ms. [VICTIM #1] and Mr. [VICTIM #2] outside of Lot [REDACTED]. Deputy Galloway and Cpl. Henning arrived on scene shortly after.
Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated the incident involved a 15 year old female juvenile who was inside the residence.

He stated Mr. Jones’ gun appeared to be a “Drako”. He also stated Mr. Jones fired the firearm.
Juvenile 2 stated her brother, Juvenile 1, called her and stated Ms. Decos had punched him. She stated she came to the residence at Lot [REDACTED] to confront Ms. Decos about the incident.

Ms. [VICTIM #1] was given a victim’s pamphlet and told how to obtain a copy of this report.
I later spoke with Ms. Decos via phone. She stated her 15 year old daughter was dating Juvenile 1. She stated Juvenile 1 had physically assaulted her daughter a couple of weeks ago, so when she saw him she punched him in the face. She stated people arrived at the residence upset after the incident and tried to fight her. She stated Mr. Jones made her go inside a bedroom at the residence and he exited the residence with a firearm. Ms. Decos stated shortly after, she heard shots being fired.
