Cross-state shooting spree suspect indicted

Wilmington Police Dept.
Radee Prince

A New Castle grand jury has indicted 37 year old Radee Prince, the man who police say shot 5 people--killing three--at an Edgewood, Maryland office park, then shot and wounded a man at 28th Street Auto Sales and Service in Northeast Wilmington that same day.

Last week, prosecutors from both states released a joint statement saying Prince was to be tried in Delaware first rather than Maryland. The statement cited Delaware’s criminal law which does not allow for parole, whereas parole may be available under Maryland law.

The grand jury indicted Prince on eight crimes including first degree attempted murder. The other charges are two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, first-degree reckless endangering, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of ammunition by a person prohibited, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

If convicted, Prince could receive a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole.

Prince also face multiple charges of murder and attempted murder in Maryland where he could also be sentenced to life in prison.

When arraigned in Delaware, Prince was held on 2 million dollars cash bail.
