ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - One of two suspects allegedly involved in a shooting on Dale Avenue Friday turned himself in to Roanoke police.

Roanoke police said 45-year-old Poindexter Demitrius Penn turned himself in and was held at the Roanoke City jail. He faces a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police said officers are still searching for 23-year-old Shaquille Wesley Brown. He faces a charge of malicious wounding.

It happened Friday evening. Officers responded to the 700 block of Dale Avenue after a report of a gunshot wound. Witnesses told officers that two people had been shot and had already been taken to the hospital by personal vehicle rather than an ambulance.

According to a press release, officers responded to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and determined the victims to be Donsha Kenneth Calloway, age 26, of Roanoke and Little Willie Hudson, age 49, of Roanoke. Calloway was wounded in the jaw and Hudson in the elbow. Officers conducted interviews and collected physical evidence at both the 700 block of Dale and at the hospital.

After further investigation detectives obtained warrants on Poindexter Demitrius Penny, age 45, of Roanoke and Shaquille Wesley Brown, age 23, of Roanoke.

The investigation is on-going. Anyone with information should call 911. If you have any information that might help officers locate them, please call the Roanoke Valley Crime Line at 540-344-8500 (tips are anonymous) or you can text an anonymous tip to the number 274637 (CRIMES).
