Details Emerge In Easter Sunday Shooting

A Poolesville man was charged with attempted murder; two other males may have been involved

Two other males may have been involved in an Easter Sunday shooting in Potomac that left one man wounded and led to the arrest of a Poolesville teen, Montgomery County District Court records show.

DeAngelo Jackson, 19, of the 19500 block of Jerusalem Church Terrace, is being held without bail on charges of attempted first-degree murder and several related offenses, Montgomery County Police said in a statement Wednesday.

Montgomery County Police responded to reports of shots fired at a home in the 8500 block of Victory Lane on April 8, at around 11:45 p.m.

Police alleged in court documents that three males — two of them armed — rang the doorbell and pushed their way inside when a resident answered.

It was Jackson, police allege, who pistol-whipped a 21-year-old resident who answered the door, proceeding to shoot him in the abdomen and in his lung, the court records state.

Then as the wounded man ran up a stairwell, police alleged, he was shot in the rear and on the left side of his body.

The three males left the scene in a white sedan with tinted windows, the court documents state.

The shooting victim was treated at Suburban Hospital and has since been released, police said.

Jackson was charged attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and several firearms-related charges.

Jackson has requested a preliminary hearing and is scheduled to appear in Montgomery County District Court on Friday, May 11.

Where do these crazy loons come from? What kind of dysfunctional family produced this menace to society?

He comes from the family that occupied that Home Makeover thing in 2008 in Poolesville. Every liberal thought that it was so great that a "family" could have a free home. In the meantime it has turned into a drug dealing spot.

I think you all need to stop bad mouthing the family. Just because a child falls in to the wrong path, does not mean that everyone in the family is bad. I know other families as well that are great people, very active in church and amazing parents, but some how their child falls in to the worng thing and ends up doing / or being involved in something that is unthinkable to us. So lets be human and remember that just because a grown child did or does something they shouldn't that it doesnt mean the whole family did it, and they shouldnt have to deal with being put down by people like you!!! I am sure they are dealing with a lot them self. I know it would crush me if one of my children was involved in anything like this.
