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.
