A Lincoln man sought in the recent shooting at a Lincoln convenience store was caught Aug. 25 at a Slaughter Station Road home.

Delaware State Police went to a home at 23036 Slaughter Station Road at 3 p.m. and tried to make contact with Joshua R. Daniels, 18, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

Daniels refused to leave the home; he finally came to the door at 4 p.m. when police arrested him, Fournier said.

Daniels was charged with first-degree attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, three counts of first-degree reckless endangering and first-degree conspiracy.

He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $160,000 cash bond.

On Aug. 16, police say Daniels and his cousin, Timothy Daniels, 22, of Lincoln went to King's Market on Fleatown Road where Joshua got in a fight with a 21-year-old man.

The two drove away and went to a relative's home and got a semiautomatic handgun; Joshua drove back to the market, and Timothy was in the passenger seat, said Sgt. Paul Shavack of the Delaware State Police.

At the market, Joshua fired six shots at the 21-year-old who was standing near a 19-year-old man and a 57-year-old man, Shavack said. A shot struck the 21-year-old in the lower leg. Joshua and Timothy drove off.

The other men were uninjured; the 21-year-old man was treated and released from an area hospital.

About an hour after the shooting, Shavack said, police spotted Timothy riding a bicycle on Cubbage Pond Road. He tried to flee, but was apprehended by a Delaware State Police K-9; Timothy was treated and released for several dog bites, Shavack said.

Timothy Daniels was charged with first-degree attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, first-degree reckless endangering and first-degree conspiracy. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $125,000 cash bond.
