New Charges, Defendant Added To NorthPak Indictment  

Department of Justice | News | Date Posted: Wednesday, December 15, 2021



The Department of Justice has secured a reindictment adding a new defendant, and several charges against existing defendants, in the case against the Wilmington-area gang NorthPak.

“This reindictment is yet another product of the amazing work that prosecutors and police are doing to take down NorthPak,” said Attorney General Jennings. “These are not simple cases. They are grueling, complicated investigations that involve multiple defendants, all too many victims, and layer upon layer of evidence and analysis. We are bringing more defendants – and more victims – closer to justice and we owe that to the dedication, teamwork, and ceaseless efforts of prosecutors and law enforcement.”  

“The continued progress stemming from this indictment demonstrates the power of our multi-jurisdictional partnerships, and the tireless work of our investigators,” said Chief Robert J. Tracy. “As our community and state continue to see gun violence and firearm crime persist, we remain steadfast in our efforts to make our communities safer and hold these offenders responsible.”

The reindictment charges Isaiah Lecompte with three counts of Attempted Murder First Degree, four counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Illegal Gang Participation, Conspiracy First Degree, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited. If convicted on all charges, Isaiah Lecompte faces a minimum prison sentence of 57 years and a maximum life sentence. Lecompte was apprehended by authorities in Texas and has been extradited to Delaware to face charges.

The reindictment further adds charges against existing defendants Deshonne Moore and Khalil Rodriguez-Fitzgerald. Moore faces additional charges of Attempted Murder First Degree, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony.  Rodriguez-Fitzgerald faces additional charges of Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited. 

The indictments were secured by Deputy Attorneys General Erika Flaschner, Joe Grubb, and AJ Hill, with an ongoing investigation led by Det. Justin Kane and Det. Tom Curley of Wilmington Police Department, and critical support from DOJ Criminal Intelligence Analyst/Investigator Dan Masi, Julia Bacon, Sarah Molaski, and DAG Paige Todaro.
