LAUREL, Del.- A Laurel man is dead after police say multiple masked suspects entered his home and shot him numerous times in the upper body. Police say 21-year-old Kyle Newman was the victim in Saturday night's home invasion and shooting.

Newman has family members that live just a few hundred yards away from his home on Horsey and Everett Road in Laurel. 

"We had seen the paramedics go by and the police and everything so I went down to see what happened and that's when they told me that my cousin had been shot," said Newman's cousin, Ritchie Camper.

Police said the people who entered Newman's home Saturday night were wearing dark clothes and dark colored masks. They fled the scene of the crime on foot. Police said at this point in their investigation, they are unsure if any money or property was stolen from the home.

As police try and piece together this crime, Newman's family is left wondering how this could happen to one of their own.

"I'm pretty sure everybody is pretty hurt.  Everybody is pretty hurt.  He has a very young son and it is just a sad day," said Camper.

As police continue to gather evidence for their investigation, they ask anyone with information to contact them immediately. Anyone with information is asked to contact 911 or the DSP Homicide Unit, Detective Fred Chambers at (302) 388-0196 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.  Information may also be provided via the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com. Send an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
