DOVER, Del. -- Delaware State Police have arrested three people in connection with the Port Mahon murder.

The body of 24-year-old Dontray Hendricks was found on the fishing pier on March 30 in Dover.

Police say Daiquan T. Bordley, 22 of Dover, Zhyhee Y. Harmon, 22 of Dover, and Chelsea Braunskill, 19 of Camden-Wyoming, were all arrested and charged by detectives with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and second-degree conspiracy.  The three were remanded into custody of the Delaware Department of Corrections without bail upon their initial arraignments through the Justice of the Peace, according to police.
 
Police say the investigation revealed that Chelsea Braunskill accompanied Hendricks to the Port Mahon fishing pier where they were allegedly going to smoke marijuana.  Once there, police say three men confronted them from behind and a physical altercation ensued between Hendricks and one of the men identified as Daiquan Bordley.  Bordley then shot Hendricks in the torso and left him on the pier where he succumbed to his wound, police say.  The three men then fled the area in Bordley’s vehicle.  Braunskill, who knew about the plan to rob Hendricks prior to their arrival at the pier, then fled the scene in Hendrick’s vehicle.
 
Troopers were called to the fishing pier at approximately 12:39 p.m. for a report of an unresponsive male.  Troopers arrived and located the man who was later identified as Dontray Hendricks, 24 of Dover, and subsequently pronounced dead by Kent County Paramedics.  Delaware State Police Homicide Unit detectives were then contacted and responded to the scene in order to assume the investigation.
 
The body of Dontray Hendricks was then turned over to the Division of Forensic Sciences where an autopsy determined that his manner of death was a homicide caused by being shot.
 
Through thorough investigative means, police say detectives were able to identify and link three of the four subjects involved in the murder of Dontray Hendricks.  Chelsea Braunskill turned herself into detectives on April 26, 2016 after learning of the warrant for her arrest.  Daiquan Bordley was taken into custody without incident on April 29, 2016 by troopers in the area of Chestnut Street in Smyrna.  Zhyhee Harmon was arrested by detectives without incident in the neighborhood of Capitol Green in Dover this morning, Wednesday May 4, 2016.
 
The investigation into this incident remains on-going. If anyone has any information in reference to unidentified suspect they are asked to contact Detective Dan Grassi at 302-365-8441. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
