Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH 15- MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 23 Shooting Continued from page I Blue Hen Towing on Feb. 18, but at 12:45 p.m. Feb. 19, Schuel- ler entered the impound yard, forcibly removed the fence and drove off in his vehicle, Shavack said. About 15 minutes later, a trooper identified as Cpl. Lewis W. Briggs in court records saw Schueller driving on Route I near Dartmouth Drive. Accordi ag to court records, Briggs called for assistance and Trooper Brett Cordrey joined him as Schueller drove onto Postal Lane. Schuel- ler turned into. Sandy Brae neighborhood and had driven a short distance when Briggs said he activated his emergency equipment to initiate a stop, court records state. The chase wound through Sandy Brae neighborhood and back out to Postal Lane, where Schueller crashed his ]eep into another car at the intersection of Postal Lane and Plantation Road, SUBMITTED PHOTO KEITH SCHUELLER has been "charged in connection with the chase and with thefts from six Cape Re- gion businesses - the last theft tak- ing place minutes before the shoot- ing, police say. Shavack said. An attempt by Cordrey to Taser Schueller was unsuccess- ful, Shavack said, and Schueller ran through a horse farm be- fore police cornered him near a neighboring barn. There, po- lice said, Schueller picked up a 5-foot shovel and swung it at the trooper in a threatening manner. Cordrey discharged one round from his weapon and struck Schueller in what police describe as the upper body, which the Cape Gazette earlier reported as in the chest. By definition, the upper body can include any area above the waist. Shavack said it was above the waist - the torso area -- but would not give any more detail. "The upper body is what I can give you now. I don't know the specific location," he said. Police said Cordrey has been on the police force for three years. He has been on adminis- trative leave with pay since the shooting, pending the outcome of the investigation, Shavack said. Following the shooting, Schueller was taken to Beebe Medical Center and then Chris- tiana Hospital where his mother, Marty Owers, said surgeons were unable to remove the bullet. Owers said Schueller cannot walk and has not seen a doctor since he was taken to prison. He has been in Vaughn Cor- rectional Center since Feb. 27 on $3,000 secured bond in con- nection with theft charges. One is a misdemeanor for driving away with about $80 ingas from a service station Feb. 16 after his debit card was denied for pay- ment, according to court records. He also faces a theft charge in connection with taking $2,000 Feb. 8 from a relative - a felony because the relative is more than 62 years old.
