DOVER, Del.- A Dover man is awaiting extradition back to Delaware to face charges related to a deadly home invasion.

According to police, 22-year-old Quashaun Christy has been charged in connection with the Aug. 18 shooting of Emmitt Brown on Queen Street.

  • Home invasion
  • First-degree robbery
