(Salisbury, Md) - A report of a fight and shots fired ended with seven people arrested in Wicomico County. Early Thursday Morning, December 21, 2017, Maryland State Police along with Salisbury police and the Wicomico Sheriff's Deputies were called to the 800 block of Parker Road in Salisbury.
Police say it began about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 20, 2017, when four of the suspects drove to the home in the 800-block of Parker Road with the intent of fighting the woman who lived there, due to an ongoing dispute. The four suspects left the scene initially after seeing how many people were at the home.
Shortly before 1:00 a.m. Thursday, December 21, 2017, the four suspects returned with a second vehicle containing three additional persons. The suspects approached the home on foot and witnesses said a physical altercation ensued when Aitana Satchell and Leonard Pompilus assaulted the intended victim outside her home. The victim's parents called 911 and her mother then attempted to break up the fight. Witnesses told police it was then that Arnell Bivans pointed a handgun at the victim's mother before firing multiple shots into the air. No one reported any injuries in the incident.
Police arrested Arnell Bivans, 24, of Fruitland, Md., Dae von Wheeless, 19, of Glen Burnie, Md., and Aitana Satchell, 20, Angela Collins, 21, Leonard Pompilus, 21, and Ellen Curry, 22, all of Salisbury, Md. A juvenile female was also arrested and charged as a juvenile.
Each suspect has been charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree assault. Collins, Wheeless, Bivans, and Pompilus have also been charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance and one count each of possession of heroin and possession of crack cocaine. Bivans is additionally charged with first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and being a felon in possession of a handgun. He was also found to be wanted on a warrant from Wicomico County for drug distribution.
As they were arriving on the scene, police were told the suspects were fleeing in two vehicles. Police located the vehicles and conducted traffic stops. As they were stopping one vehicle with four occupants later identified as Collins, Wheeless, Bivans, and Pompilus, police observed the car drive into a ditch and, moments later, drive back out before stopping. Searching the area after the stop, police recovered a handgun from the ditch where the vehicle had stopped. In plain view inside the vehicle, police found suspected heroin and crack cocaine packaged for street sales.
