LINCOLN, Del. -- Delaware State Police say they are investigating an incident that left one man shot following an altercation early Saturday morning in Lincoln.

Police say at approximately 2:55 a.m., troopers were called to respond to a residence located on the 10000 block of Crescent Shores Drive after a report of a shooting. Upon their arrival, troopers say they learned that a 34-year-old male resident was shot from behind in the upper torso area while he was seated in the living room. Troopers say that the victim had been in his residence with two other people, when a male acquaintance of the victim, identified as James A. Satcher, 24, of Milford, arrived at the residence with a female. At some point during the night, a physical altercation occurred between the female who had arrived with Satcher and a second female who was also in the home. Police say the victim then ordered Satcher and the woman he had brought to the house to leave. Approximately thirty minutes later, James Satcher returned to the house and proceeded to fire several rounds from an unknown make and model gun into the home, striking the victim, police reported. Satcher fled scene in an unknown direction.

The victim was treated at the scene by Sussex County paramedics and then transported to the Milford Memorial Hospital, where police say he was treated for non-life threatening injuries; there were no other injuries.

Detectives have obtained warrants charging James A. Satcher with Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Reckless Endangering 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.

Satcher is 5’11” tall, weighs 195 lbs., and has black hair and brown eyes.
