Police Investigate Shooting in Peaceful Acres near Bridgeville

Posted:

BRIDGEVILLE, Del.- The Delaware State Police is currently investigating a shooting that happened early Sunday morning east of Bridgeville.

The incident happened around1:30 a.m. as troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 12000 block of Ryan Lane for a reported person shot. 

Upon their arrival, troopers found an 18-year-old man in the house who had been shot numerous times in the lower torso.  

Medical crews tended to the victim and he was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) in Salisbury where he underwent surgery for his wounds.
 
The investigation revealed that the 18-year-old and another man went outside of the house to smoke a cigarette.  At that time, the two were approached by two men wearing masks who then shot at the 18-year-old.

The suspects then ran off in an unknown direction. The victim and the other male ran back into the house.

Detectives have determined through preliminary interviews and investigation that this was not a random act and that the victim may have been targeted.  He is currently in stable condition at PRMC.
