Daquan Walker and Christina D. Morgan surrendered to police April 17

Two people have been arrested after a 14-year-old girl was shot with a pellet gun and then assaulted in Harrington.

The incident took place at about 7:14 p.m. Tuesday, April 17 at a home in the first block of Clark Street, reported Harrington Police Department spokesman Capt. Earl K. Brode.

The girl told officers she and others had been inside the house when she got into an argument with 18-year-old Daquan Walker of Harrington and Christina D. Morgan, 21, of Magnolia.

During the argument, Walker allegedly grabbed the pellet gun and fired several shots, hitting the girl in the leg. He and Morgan then stopped the girl as she tried to run from the house and assaulted her, Jaffe said.

The girl finally was able to escape, and Morgan and Walker fled before police arrived.

The pair surrendered to Harrington police the following day.

Both are charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment and offensive touching.

Walker also is charged with aggravated menacing, third-degree assault, second-degree conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child. He has been released from custody on a $6,500 unsecured bond.

In addition to the above charges, Morgan faces a single count of third-degree conspiracy. She later was released on a $1,500 unsecured bond.
