Second suspect arrested in Dade City shooting

DADE CITY — A second suspect has been arrested in a shooting last week in which the bullets shattered the victim's shin.

Shortly before midnight Dec. 6, Edner Deshawn Dely and Sinclair Davis broke into a house at 14838 Porter St., a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. Deputies say Davis, 22, shot 23-year-old Earon Hicks in the foot and leg with a 9mm handgun. They say Dely. 20, also fired a gun, but it was unclear if any of his shots actually hit the victim.

Hicks managed to get out of the house to call 911. He was treated at a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Hicks told deputies he has known Davis for a long time and that he knew Dely, too. Davis was arrested Friday. Dely was arrested Monday. He was on probation for having a gun as a felon, reports state.

Two years ago, Dely was accused of forcing a man to his knees and shooting at him near Cooper's Bar in Carver Heights. One shot missed the man. The other grazed his head.

Dely was charged in the Dec. 6 shooting with violation of probation, burglary with assault and attempted murder. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Tuesday without bail.

Deputies have not released a motive for the attack.
