DOVER, Del.- Authorities say a wanted man shot multiple times Tuesday afternoon by a Delaware Probation and Parole officer at the Capitol Green community in Dover is facing firearms, drugs and related charges.  

Dover police said Jamera Fisher, 25, of Dover, and Kylea Ewell, 22, of Harrington, who was with Fisher during Tuesday's incident, have both been officially charged. 

It happened about 12:22 p.m. in an alley behind the 400 block of New Castle Avenue, according to police.

Two Probation and Parole officers were in the area because of a tip that Fisher, a man whom authorities said was wanted, had been seen nearby, police said.

Police said Fisher was seen getting into the driver's seat of a car with a Ewell in passenger seat at which time the officers attempted to stop them.

Fisher rammed the officers' vehicles when he tried to flee and then aggressively drove his car in their direction, according to police. 

One of the Probation and Parole officers fired his gun four times, striking Fisher multiple times, police said. Authorities said Fisher was taken to Kent General Hospital for treatment of two graze wounds to his upper left arm, a graze wound to his neck, and an entry wound into his left side.

Police said that at the time of the incident, Fisher was found to be in possession of a loaded handgun, 39 bags (.58 grams) of heroin, prescription drugs, and 9.5 grams of marijuana. Fisher was committed to the Department of Correction on $90,000 bond on the following charges:

  • Four counts of first-degree reckless endangering 
  • Possession of firearm by person prohibited (drug possession)
  • Possession of firearm during commission of felony
  • Possession of heroin
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Third-degree conspiracy

Ewell was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, third-degree conspiracy, possession of heroin, possession of controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of $1,100 secured bond. 

Dover police spokesman M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman said his department is leading the investigation into the incident and working with the  Department of Correction and the Delaware Attorney General's Office to ensure a thorough investigation is completed.
