Trio Arrested In Shooting Investigation Near Rockford

KHQ.COM - Major crimes and gang enforcement team detectives Tuesday arrested three suspects in connection with the shotgun shooting of a man outside Rockford, Washington Sunday morning.

Meghan L. Jeske, 22, and Francisco D. Mora, 23, attempted to flee from detectives by driving away on a summer road in the 15000 block of South Molter. The shooter, 16-year-old Tarique R. Jeske, was hiding in the trunk when the car was stopped.

Meghan and Mora were each booked into the Spokane County Jail on misdemeanor counts of Riot. Tarique Jeske was booked into Spokane County Juvenile Detention on a First-Degree Assault charge, but his case was declined by juvenile court Wednesday morning and he was moved to the Spokane County Jail pending trial.

Detectives said Wednesday that the shooting at a party in the 16000 block of South Molter about 1 a.m. Sunday was the result of a drunken dispute between the victim and Meghan Jeske.

Everyone at the party is a member of the same gang, detectives said. Following the dispute, Tarique and two others went to a home in the 15000 block of South Molter and then returned with a shotgun. 

Tarique shot the 23-year-old victim in the left leg, and at the same time, the others beat the victim's current girlfriend.  She called 911 to report the shooting after the suspects fled the home.

Detectives served a search warrant on the home in the 16000 block Sunday and recovered cellular phones, at least one of which contained photos of the party.  They also seized items suspected of containing fingerprints.

The shooting victim and his girlfriend have been described as uncooperative.  However, investigators were able to use the party photos to identify other participants in the party.

On Tuesday, they set up surveillance on the home in the 15000 block of S. Molter and obtained a second search warrant.  When they announced their presence, the trio unsuccessfully attempted to flee out a back way from the home.

Detectives stopped the car and noted crutches in the car, but no Tarique who they knew had an injured ankle.  They discovered the suspect inside the car's trunk.

 

    The resident at the home told detectives he had owned a shotgun, but that it had been stolen two weeks ago and he had failed to report it.

 

    Investigation into the matter is ongoing.

 

    The Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team is a multi-agency investigative group comprised of detectives from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, Spokane Police Department, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive, the Washington Department of Corrections.
