SELBYVILLE, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with an early Tuesday morning shooting in Selbyville.

Troopers took Devon N. Gordon into custody shortly after arriving on the scene. Officers said that around 3:20 a.m. they responded to a 911 call about a woman who was shot and found a 25-year-old female sitting outside of a car on Hosier Street with a gunshot to the head.  The victim was flown to Christiana Medical Center in critical condition.

Troopers said their investigation showed that Gordon left his home around 3 a.m. and met with the 25-year-old next door neighbor. During the meeting, investigators said Gordon shot the victim once in the head.

Authorities said a 49-year-old man who lives with Gordon and his mother heard the gunshot, then heard someone banging at the front door. Officials say when he went to see what all the commotion was about, he heard another gunshot and turned to look out the back door where the glass was shattered by a bullet.

According to police, the man saw Gordon standing with a gun pointed toward him, but he was able to open the door and disarm him.

Gordon was allowed back into the house where police said he obtained another handgun. The man was again able to wrestle the weapon away from Gordon. One shot was fired but officials said it narrowly missed the man who sustained minor injuries during the struggle.

Police charged Gordon with two counts of attempted murder and three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He is being held on $310,000 cash-only bond.

More charges are pending following the investigation, troopers said.
