DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are continuing to investigate an incident in which an armed Dover man barricaded himself inside his home Saturday morning.

Troopers say shortly after 10 a.m. they responded to call that an armed man was threatening suicide at his home on the 2000 block of General’s Way in Dover.

Responding officers say Glenn Klebart, 49, of Dover made suicidal statements to his wife and was confirmed to be in possession of a handgun.

The first officers on the scene say Klebart fired multiple rounds from inside the home, hitting an unoccupied, parked vehicle. 

Troopers from Troop 3, with help from the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team, convinced Klebart to surrender.

He exited the Dover home at approximately 11:43 a.m., according to police.

Police say Klebart was taken to an area hospital for evaluation where no injuries were reported relating to the incident. 

Delaware State Police say they are still investigating with charges forthcoming.
