Police: Man Critical After Self-inflicted Shooting in Laurel


LAUREL, Del.- Delaware State Police say troopers were called to assist the U.S. Marshals Service with a criminal investigation in Laurel after a male suspect suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Troopers said the incident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday as the US Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force was attempting to locate two suspects at a home on the 31000 block of White Street in Laurel.

According to police, during the investigation, the CARFTF was able to take an adult female suspect into custody. That is when Task Force members heard a gunshot fired from within the home. The CARFTF was unable to make contact with the adult male suspect located inside of the home.

The CARFTF contacted Delaware State Police for assistance. Troopers arrived and set up a perimeter around the house.

Troopers said that at approximately 8 p.m. the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team made entry into the house and located the male suspect who suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A trooper medic assigned to the Special Operations Response Team provided emergency medical care.

The man was flown by Delaware State Police Aviation Helicopter Trooper 2 to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., where he is listed in critical condition.

Police said they continue to investigate this incident.
