Milford Standoff Ends; Suspect and Victim Pronounced Dead

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. (WBOC/AP)– Delaware State Police say the suspect in a fatal shooting has been found dead inside a home in Milford.

Troopers were called to the home Sunday afternoon after a 72-year-old man was found shot in the yard of a home on the 5000 block of Williamsville Road. The man was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where police say he was pronounced dead.

Police say a 42-year-old man who was a suspect in the shooting of the older man barricaded himself in the home and police tried to contact him to persuade him to surrender. Police say when members of the special operations response team entered the home shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday, they found the man dead.

Police did not immediately release the names of the two men, pending notification of next of kin.
