Delaware man charged with shooting at Pat’s Steaks

A Delaware man has been charged with firing a weapon outside of Pat’s Steaks in December, according to District Attorney Larry Krasner.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, Darius Blalock, 22, of Bear Delaware engaged in an argument with a group of people outside of Pat’s on Dec. 27 and fired multiple shots before jumping into a vehicle and fleeing the scene.

No one was injured, according to the DA’s Office.

Using surveillance video, tips from the public, and help from New Castle County Police, Blalock was arrested and charged with possession of an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person, and other related offenses.
“It is lucky that no one was harmed during this incident. But workers, customers, and passersby were all endangered. Neighbors were terrified by this individual’s criminal actions last December,” Krasner said. “Philadelphia Police and Delaware law enforcement worked diligently to make sure this individual’s gun ownership privileges are revoked and that he is held accountable for his actions. I also want to express gratitude to members of the public who provided information to authorities that enabled us to bring this individual to justice.”
