Dover Police Investigate Two Separate Shootings

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Dover police are investigating two separate shooting incidents that happened Sunday. The first incident occurred early in the morning when a man was shot and injured while pumping gas. The other, which happened late in the evening, involved shots fired at an occupied home.

Police said the first shooting happened at around 1 a.m. Sunday at the Wawa on 1450 Forrest Ave. According to police, officers in the area heard a shot fired at the convenience store.  As officers arrived, they observed a large SUV flee at a high rate of speed.  Officers stopped the vehicle and learned that an unknown suspect had fired a gun in SUV's direction as a fight was about to start in the parking lot.  A short time later, a 21-year-old man was contacted at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right elbow.  The victim told investigators that he was pumping gas when he was shot in the elbow and received a ride to the hospital from friends.  Detectives are still trying to identify the suspect in the shooting.

The second incident happened at around 11:45 p.m. Sunday when an unknown suspect fired multiple shots in the 400 block of New Castle Avenue. Police said a home on the street- which was occupied by five people - was struck at least three times.  Multiple shell casings were found in the area, according to investigators. 

Anyone with information on either of the aforementioned shootings is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at (302) 736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips can also be submitted to law enforcement through tip lines maintained by Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or on-line at http://www.tipsubmit.com or through the Dover Police Department MyPD Mobile App
