The suspect in an August 9 shooting incident in Kill Devil Hills has been arrested.

On August 9 at approximately 9:01 p.m., officers with the Kill Devil Hills Police Department were dispatched to a 911 call involving a shooting incident in the 300 block of W. 3rd Street. The caller advised their friend had been shot in the leg and the shooter had fled the scene, according to the Kill Devil Hills Police Department.

“The suspect in this case is Isaias E. DePaul, 24, of Kill Devil Hills [who] was arrested this afternoon,” stated a Wednesday afternoon, August 12 press release from KDHPD. “Through an arrangement with his attorney, Mr. DePaul turned himself in peacefully. He was transported to the Dare County Detention Center and placed under a $20,000 secured bond.”

The Kill Devil Hills Police Department expressed thanks to the Nags Head Police Department, the Dare County Sheriff’s Office and the NC SBI Fugitive and Missing Person Task Force, which KDHPD states were instrumental in the search for DePaul, which helped bring pressure on DePaul to surrender himself.
