A north-east teenager wanted in connection with the shooting of a security guard at a US frat party has fled back to Aberdeen.

The Press and Journal can today reveal that Daniel Magee – who is accused of opening fire at a security guard at party near the University of Texas in Austin – has skipped bail and is now hiding out with family.

The 19-year-old was arrested last September.

He had originally fled the scene of the shooting, but later tracked down by Texan police.

When officers searched the former Dyce Academy pupil’s car and home, they found an AK47 assault rifle and a .40-caliber handgun, although it is understood the weapons were not used in the incident.

Magee had been released from custody on a $50,000 (£38,000) bail, and has attended a number of preliminary court hearings over the last year.

However, last month, he failed to attend a hearing and a warrant was issued ordering Texas peace officers and sheriffs to re-arrest Magee, with a new bail bond set at $100,000 (£76,000).

He has now been spotted back in the north-east, and answered the door at a property in Dyce yesterday.

He declined to comment on his case however.

Police in Aberdeen are unable to arrest him on behalf of their American counterparts, as an international arrest warrant has not been issued.

According to court papers, security guard Edward Earls removed Magee from the party for causing trouble. It is alleged that about 30 minutes later, Magee returned with two roommates and shot the guard’s foot. His roommates were not charged.

Mr Earls has undergone a series of reconstructive surgeries to his foot, and has launched a huge damages claim, worth around £4million, against Magee and the Sigma Chi fraternity group which was hosting the house party.

The lawsuit states: “Magee’s conduct was extreme and outrageous in nature, and so extreme in degree, as to go beyond all possible margins of decency, as to be regarded as atrocious and utterly intolerable in a civilised society”.

Austin police previously claimed Magee arrived at the party “heavily intoxicated” and on the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.

He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon – a first degree felony in Texas.

Houston-born Magee has moved between Texas and Aberdeen a number of times in his life due to his father’s job in the oil industry.

It is understood the teenager attended Stoneywood Primary School until 2007, and in 2013 he studied at Dyce Academy.
