Police collar ’12 shooting suspect with guns, drugs

James

– A man charged in a shooting that left another man lying critically injured on a sidewalk nearly two years ago was arrested Thursday night.

Quinn D. James, 29, of the 1300 block of Ventura Lane, was arrested about 8 p.m. on charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery.

Officers with the Fort Wayne police gang and violent crimes unit, the FBI and Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were watching a home in the 4600 block of Gaywood Drive when they saw James enter the home.

Detectives surrounded the house and arrested James without incident.

Inside the home police said they found two loaded AR-15 rifles, a 12-gauge shotgun, 6 ounces of marijuana, about 2 grams of cocaine, three Ecstasy pills and several pieces of drug paraphernalia.

James is charged in an evening shooting July 14, 2012.Witnesses told police they saw someone get out of a car, walk up to a man at Standish Drive and East Fairfax Avenue and shoot him multiple times. Police did know whether the shooter was alone or had anyone else in the car with him.

A nearby resident told The Journal Gazette at the time that she went outside after she heard gunshots and saw someone she knew on the ground.

Bullets struck Antonio “Tattoo” Hamlet several times in the chest and stomach. Hamlet told police at the scene it was James who shot him, according to court documents. Hamlet survived. James was charged two days after the shooting. He was being held Friday in lieu of $60,000 bail.

Police said more charges could be filed.

Allen County court records show James has prior felony convictions for dealing cocaine and marijuana possession.
