Delaware State Police Investigating Reports of Shots Fired at Millsboro VFW

Posted:

MILLSBORO, Del.- The Delaware State Police is investigating reports of shots fired in the parking lot of the VFW south of Millsboro.

According to police, the incident occurred at approximately 11:50 p.m. Friday, following a verbal argument between a security guard, working a private function at the VFW, and a patron who refused to leave.  Police said when the patron finally got into his vehicle and began to leave, two gun shots were heard coming from the direction of the vehicle.  Troopers, who were in the area at the time, reportedly heard the gunshots and responded to the parking lot to investigate. 

Police said a description of the vehicle was obtained, and the troopers were able to make contact with a 19-year-old male driver and a 17-year-old male passenger still in the parking lot.  A search of the vehicle yielded no weapons, but according to police, the 17-year-old male was found to have two capiases out of local courts.  He was transported to JP3 and released to a parent after his arraignment.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Troop 4 at 302-856-5850 or utilize the Delaware State Police Mobile Crime Tip Application available to download at: http://www.delaware.gov/apps/.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
