Police Investigating After Shots Fired Near Magnolia

Posted: Updated:

MAGNOLIA, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for whoever fired several shots during a party held at a home in The Village of Chestnut Ridge subdivision near Magnolia. 

Police said the investigation got underway at around 12 a.m. Sunday as troopers responded to the 400 block of West Chestnut Ridge Drive for numerous 9-1-1 calls about a loud party.  When troopers arrived, they said the party was beginning to clear out and a large crowd began to form outside where a fight broke out. Police said that as troopers began approaching the fight, multiple gun shots were fired by unknown people at the party.  Authorities said additional police agencies, including Felton and Dover police, responded to the area for assistance and the crowd was dispersed without further incidents of gunfire or fights. 

No injuries or victims of the fight were reported and no arrests were made, police said. 

Police said that later that afternoon, the residents of a home on the unit block of Cider Run reported a bullet hole in their 3-year-old daughter’s bedroom.  The residents told troopers they heard the commotion through the night and gathered up their children before running into their basement for their own safety.  None of them were physically injured in this incident, police said. 

This incident remains under investigation at this time and Delaware State Police are asking anyone with information regarding the people who fired the guns to contact Troop 3 Major Crimes Unit at (302) 698-8434.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
