Suspects Sought in Back-to-back Shootings That Left 2 Injured in Dover

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Dover police are investigating a pair of overnight shootings that left two men injured. 

The first incident occurred shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, when a 30-year-old man standing in front of his home in the 400 block of Barrister Place was approaching by two male suspects.  The suspects both displayed gun and went through the victim's pants pockets. Police said that as the victim pulled away, one suspect fired two rounds, striking him once in the hand and once in the thigh. The victim ran to a neighbor's home, who then transported him the Kent General Hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Both suspects were described as black, wearing all black clothing and black ski masks.  

The second shooting happened at around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Haman Drive. Police said a 20-year-old man was taking out trash from a friend's home when he saw a green four-dour vehicle drive by. The victim heard four to five gunshots and was struck in his thigh. The victim ran back to his friend’s apartment and called 911. The victim was treated at Kent General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim stated that there were four black males inside the vehicle, all wearing black hooded sweatshirts, and red face masks.

The investigation into both incidents is ongoing and anyone with information about either shooting is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips may also be submitted to law enforcement through Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333 or online at delawarecrimestoppers.com; a cash reward of up to $1,000 is possible for information leading to an arrest.
