VIOLA, Del.- Delaware State Police in Kent County have arrested a Felton man accused of shooting another man during an early Wednesday home invasion robbery near Viola. 

Troopers said they were dispatched to the 800 block of West Evens Road at around 2:30 a.m. after receiving a report about a male victim inside the home had been shot by an intruder. 

According to police, the investigation revealed the 31-year-old male victim heard banging at the rear door and when he checked on it, the door had been forced open. Police said the victim was then confronted by 22-year-old Tyree M. Bordley, an acquaintance, who was armed with a handgun and demanded cash and jewelry. When the victim informed Bordley he didn't have anything, police said Bordely shot the victim once in the right leg. Troopers said the two then began to struggle with one another before the victim was able to gain control of the handgun and fire numerous shots at Bordley. 

Investigators said Bordley, who was able to avoid being shot, then ran to a rear bedroom where a 31-year-old female and her 3-year-old son were sleeping, and displayed a large knife before grabbing the two and threatening to kill them if he did not receive his gun. 

The male victim complied and the female and young child were able to break free and flee the home, according to police. Investigators said Bordley also fled the home through the rear door in an unknown direction. 

Troopers from the DSP Troop 3 Criminal Investigations Unit as well as the Governor's Task Force  were able to locate Bordley within 45 minutes of the shooting at his home near Felton and take him into custody without incident.  He was transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, home invasion, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, second-degree assault, two counts of aggravated menacing, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal mischief. He was then ordered held in default of $274,100 secured bond.

The 31-year-old male victim was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Christiana Medical Center for treatment of what police described as a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.  The 31-year-old female and her son were transported to Kent General Hospital for minor abrasions sustained in the altercation with Bordley, police said.
