Burglary and Shooting – Kings Circle- Update

            Arrest warrants have been issued for Malcolm Eugene Belk, age 28, Danquinton Lamar Johnson, age 27, and Travis Phillip Miller, age 35, in connection with a burglary and shooting incident that occurred on Kings Circle.  At about 12:15 a. m. Thursday, November 1, 2018, deputies of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the 31-year-old male victim’s home at 1424 Kings Circle for shots fired.  The victim was not on the scene, but deputies learned from an acquaintance of his who arrived after the incident that the victim was at Springs Memorial Hospital. 

            Investigators learned that the victim was on the way home from work and was notified by his roommate, who was also away from the home, that the roommate had received a home security system alert.  The victim drove to the roadway adjacent to the home and saw that the back door was open and lights were on in the home.  The victim remained in his car in the roadway.  Gunshots were fired, and the victim’s car and the victim were struck.  The victim immediately drove himself to the hospital and was transferred to another medical facility for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  Additional deputies, criminal investigators, and crime scene investigators responded to Kings Circle and to the hospital.  The victim’s car was towed to the sheriff’s office for processing.

            Early Thursday morning investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Aikiriea Okeishai Crockett, age 21, charging her with Burglary 1st Degree, and she was taken into custody Thursday.  She has also been charged with Attempted Murder and remains in the Lancaster County Detention Center. 

            Deputies and investigators are searching for Belk, Johnson, and Miller on outstanding warrants for Burglary 1st Degree.  Other charges are likely.  Based upon the nature of this incident, Belk, Johnson, and Miller should be considered armed and dangerous.  Citizens who encounter them or know of their whereabouts should immediately contact the sheriff’s office at the below number or dial 911 but should not approach them.

            Sheriff Barry Faile said, “We are glad the victim was not more seriously injured, and we wish him a speedy recovery.  This incident was marked byextreme violence, and we need to get Belk, Johnson, and Miller into custody assoon as possible.  I encourage anyone with any information on their location or this incident to contact us.”
