Shots Fired in Dover Home Invasion

DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are searching for a pair of suspects wanted in connection with a south Dover home invasion in which shots were fired at a man inside.

Just before 11 p.m. a  911 call was placed by a neighbor who reported hearing gunshots coming from the house next door in the unit block of Becky Lane.

Authorities said two suspects, one armed with a handgun, forced their way into the home and confronted a 28-year-old female and her 11-month-old child in the master bedroom. The suspects demanded money and asked for a specific person who was not home at the time, police said.

A 26-year-old male sleeping in another bedroom woke from the noise and upon entering the hallway was fired upon once by a white male suspect, according to police. They said the man was shot at again as he reentered his bedroom and jumped out the window to escape. The victim ran to a nearby Royal Farms store where he contacted the Kent County Emergency Operation Center.

Police said the suspects entered a dark four-door vehicle and fled the area without any items or money. During the 9-1-1 call, the neighbor also reported observing a male suspect exiting the house. 

The male victim was treated and released from a local hospital for injuries sustained from jumping through the window. The female victim and her daughter were uninjured.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective S. Doherty at (302) 741-2817, or by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
