Update (3/7/22): Volusia sheriff’s detectives have arrested a St. Augustine teen in a January shooting in Deltona, which injured a 19-year-old man.

When the incident occurred early Jan. 16, deputies were met with inconsistent information and lack of cooperation from parties on scene. However, since then, detectives have conducted interviews, examined evidence and using investigative means, confirmed the suspect’s identity and placed him at the scene. Shortly before 4 a.m. Jan. 16, the victim was shot in his left leg outside a house in the 2300 block of Lake Helen Osteen Road. He was treated for a non-life-threatening injury and has recovered.

Jeremiah Fuller, 18, (DOB 02/19/2003) was arrested this week at the Volusia County Branch Jail where he was already facing unrelated charges.  He is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon/ammo by a person declared delinquent in Volusia County (10/30/19).

He remains held at the jail.

The original news release appears below.

Detectives are investigating a shooting that left three young men with minor injuries early Sunday as they drove on U.S. 92 between DeLand and Daytona Beach, and a separate shooting that injured another man in Deltona.

Deputies responded to AdventHealth Hospital in DeLand around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after three male victims between the ages of 17 and 19 showed up at the hospital for treatment.

Detectives learned the victims had left a house party in DeLand and were headed to another party in Daytona Beach when another vehicle pulled alongside them on U.S. 92 and someone started shooting.

Two victims sustained grazing wounds to their heads, and the third had a gunshot wound to his forearm.

After the shooting, the victims were able to turn around and drive back to the hospital in DeLand.

The investigation is active and ongoing and no arrests have been made as of this writing.

Also early Sunday, deputies responded to a separate, unrelated shooting reported shortly after 4 a.m. in Deltona. In that case, a 19-year-old man was shot in the leg outside a house on the 2300 block of Lake Helen Osteen Road.

Due to inconsistent information provided and limited cooperation from those on scene, details of what led to that shooting are unconfirmed at this time. The victim was treated for a non-life-threatening injury, and the investigation is continuing.
