Two Sought in Del. Home Invasion Shooting

Posted:
TOWNSEND, Del.- Delaware State Police are searching for two suspects wanted in connection with an early Wednesday home invasion and shooting that left a man injured in Townsend.

The incident occurred shortly before 4 a.m. at a home on the 6300 block of Summit Bridge Road. Troopers said two armed male suspects forced their way inside the home by breaking through a door. Police said one suspect entered a bedroom and confronted a 33-year-old male and 34-year-old female, and demanded money from the pair. While this occurred, a 12-year-old girl reportedly entered the room. The suspect held all three victims in the room until he received cash, according to investigators.
 
Police said the second suspect entered another bedroom, which was occupied by a 21-year-old male. Troopers said the suspect and victim then got into a fight, which culminated with the suspect shooting the victim once in the torso. Both suspects then fled.
 
The 21-year-old victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of the gunshot wound. His injury does not appear to be life-threatening, police said.
 
Investigators said both suspects were described as black, 20-30 years of age, armed with handguns and wearing clothing over their faces. One of the suspects was additionally described as approximately 5-foot-11 and with a medium build. The other was described as approximately 5-foot-5 and with a medium build.
