Tip leads police to woman linked to drive-by shooting

Juneau Police Department detectives followed up on a tip Thursday morning that helped them locate one person of interest tied to a drive-by shooting.

Police found Sky Linn Stubblefield, 25, inside a residence in the 3900 block of North Douglas Highway and arrested her without incident, according to a press release by JPD.

Lt. David Campbell told the Empire by phone Thursday that Stubblefield was transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital to treat a leg injury, possibly acquired when she fled officers after the early Wednesday morning shooting.

Stubblefield is being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center without bail. Police are recommending Stubblefield be charged with first-degree aiding and abetting misconduct involving weapons, a felony that has a maximum possible punishment of 10 years in prison; first-degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer, a felony that can carry up to five years in prison; contempt of court for failing to report to jail on a previous case and a bench warrant for failure to comply with conditions of probation.

Stubblefield, along with Jose Antonio Delgado, 47, was named as a person of interest tied to the firing of a single gunshot from a moving vehicle near Fourth Street at approximately 12:59 a.m. Wednesday.

Campbell said Wednesday by phone that the incident stemmed from an argument over a piece of property, which the police have not yet disclosed. Officers already in the area for another case heard the gunshot, responded and located a suspect vehicle. Police reported that no one was injured during the shooting. The bullet traveled through the front window of a house, through a lamp and lodged into a wall.

JPD is still seeking the public’s help in locating Delgado and spokesman Campbell warned Delgado may be armed and should not be contacted directly. Anyone with information about Delgado’s whereabouts is asked to call 586-0600.

Police released the following description for Delgado: He is a Hispanic male, 5’10” tall, weighs approximately 200 pounds, has a shaved head and brown eyes.

In 2015, Stubblefield was charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest, misconduct of a controlled substance and failure to appear in court twice, according to CourtView. Other various charges for Stubblefield are scattered over a nine-year period beginning in 2003.

The investigation is ongoing.
