DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police say two men were wounded Wednesday night in a drive-by shooting that occurred in a south Dover neighborhood.

At around 10 p.m., troopers and EMS personnel responded to a home located on the 100 block of Presidents Drive in the neighborhood of Capitol Park for a report of people shot.

When troopers arrived on the scene, they were advised that a car with anywhere from two to four occupants had driven by the home and shot two male victims as they were standing in the driveway. The vehicle then fled the area and out of the development onto Bay Road (US113) in an unknown direction. A 44-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for gunshot wounds to their lower extremities.  Further investigation conducted by troopers at the scene revealed that several shots were fired at the victims, police said.

According to police, the suspects were described as black males wearing baseball caps with no further clothing or physical description available. The suspect car was described as a 2005-2010 Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis.
