A New Castle County grand jury has indicted 19-year-old Marquis Crews-Foster for the February murder of a man in Wilmington.

Crews-Foster is being charged with first-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Wade Hammond, who was shot and later died after a shooting incident that occurred the night of February 16 on the 800 block of Adams Street, where Hammond and 46-year-old Lamont Davis were killed.

A spokesperson for the Wilmington Police Department said that Crews-Foster is currently charged with one murder. The murder of Davis remains under investigation.

Crews-Foster was already in police custody for "an unrelated charge," Wilmington police said. It was not immediately clear when he was arrested and what that unrelated charge was for.

In addition to murder, Crews-Foster is being charged with possession of a firearm during a felony and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.

Crews-Foster was arraigned in the New Castle County Superior Court and given a $1 million cash-only bail. He was committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution.
