Georgia authorities on Wednesday arrested a York County man who's facing charges of deliberately shooting a 13-year-old boy.

Darryl Ellis Peeples, 37, of York, was arrested by Dekalb County Police in Dekalb County, Georgia, and will be extradited to York County, according to a York City Police news release.

Peeples is accused in the March shooting of a boy who allegedly had beef with his deceased nephew — Tyree Smart, 16. Smart was shot and killed March 27 while walking in the 300 block of West Newton Avenue, according to police.

Peeples faces two counts each of attempted homicide and aggravated assault, and a count of being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm. All are felonies. He's also charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment, according to court records.

The 13-year-old boy and another teen were shot at in the 100 block of South Newberry Street, police said. The boys ran away, but the 13-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the left buttocks, according to police.

Alexis Cado-Suero

Peeples allegedly made a statement in front of police the day Smart died that he was going to kill the person who killed his nephew, police said.

York City Police last month arrested 15-year-old Alexis Cado-Suero — who was a fugitive in Smart's homicide, according to police. 

Cado-Suero was arrested while an officer was investigating gunfire he had heard the area of South West Street and West King Street and found a suspect — who turned out to be Cado-Suero, according to police.
