US Marshals Locate Third Suspect In Magnolia Area Shooting

Magnolia – U.S. Marshals took Marc A. Romano, 27, of Newark, into custody without incident on June 26, 2017 after numerous tips were received alerting detectives that he may be hiding out in a residence on South American Avenue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Romano has been incarcerated in a Philadelphia area prison since that time and was extradited back to Delaware yesterday, Tuesday July 18, 2017. He was charged with Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, seven counts of Reckless Endangering 1st, and Conspiracy 2nd. He is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Institution on $114,000.00 cash bond.

Authorities say Romano is the third suspect involved in the June 22 shooting near Magnolia.

Unlike other news organizations, First State Update hasn’t put up a paywall. We want to provide the news to as many readers as possible.

Our readership has grown far beyond our greatest expectations in such a short period of time.

In less than two years we have become one of Delaware most popular and  trusted news sources.

To keep this thing firing on all cylinders we need to do some serious updates and upgrades to our equipment.

That takes cash. Digital advertising revenue has declined in recent years as advertisers have begun to pay less for advertising and readers have begun using adblocker software.

Rather than promote ads that don’t get clicked on we are increasingly removing ads in favor of reader funded support.

If just a fraction of First State Update’s readers pitched in a couple of bucks we would be set for a while. You can support First State Update for as little as $1.
