DOVER, Del.- Dover police have arrested a 17-year-old suspect accused of shooting two people at the Elks Lodge on North Kirkwood Street last weekend.

Police said that shortly after midnight Sunday, James Ewell entered the Elks Lodge without security noticing, and fired at least three shots, leaving two men injured.

A 44-year-old male victim was struck twice in the upper leg, and a 25-year-old male was hit in the lower leg. Both victims were treated at the Bayhealth Kent General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

At the time of the shooting, witnesses told officers the shooter was between the ages of 16 and 20. Police said detectives reviewing surveillance footage were able to identify a suspect, even seeing a 9 mm handgun in his hand as he fled the lodge. Further investigation revealed Ewell as the suspect, according to police.

Ewell was arrested Tuesday night at the William Marion Stevenson House Detention Center, where he was being held on unrelated charges after the shooting had occurred. He faces two counts of first-degree assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, second-degree burglary, and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

Bond information is not currently available.
