DOVER, Del.- The suspect in a shooting Sunday afternoon in Dover has been arrested by the Wilmington Police Department.

According to Dover Police, 34-year-old Aaron Brown of Dover was wanted for a shooting in the area of South New Street and Reed Street that left a 22-year-old victim injured. Police said the victim was uncooperative with officers investigating the shooting, however several witnesses in the area, along with video surveillance, led to the identification of Brown as the suspect in the shooting. 

Dover Police said the Wilmington Police Department contacted Brown in the area of West 4th Street and Rodney Street for a call of suspicious activity. Once the officer contacted Brown, police said he provided a fake name and stated he did not have identification on him. Following a brief investigation, police said the officer learned Brown was lying, and was able to get the correct information and learned Brown was wanted by Dover Police for the shooting incident. 

According to police, a search of Brown led to the discovery of 3.8 grams of crack cocaine.  In addition to the charges from the Dover Police Department, Brown now faces charges of intent to deliver a controlled substance with aggravating factor (within 300 feet of a church), criminal impersonation, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering for drug activity from the Wilmington Police Department.

Police said Brown is currently awaiting arraignment and bond information is not available.
