SUSSEX CO., Del. - State Police have arrested two men in connection with the recent string a shootings involving law enforcement's homes. Delaware State Police say on Wednesday morning, they arrested Orrin Joudrey, 20, of Delmar, for driving under the influence of alcohol. Police searched the vehicle where they say they found a shotgun and rifle ammunition.

They believe the items were used in the December 27th shooting of a Dewey Beach Police Officer's home, West of Laurel. Joudrey apparently told the officers that he was staying with a friend, David Watson II, at a home on County Seat Highway, in Laurel, for the past few days. A Police investigation reportedly found that Joudrey and Watson had driven around Sussex County, DE and Maryland and fired multiple rounds of shotgun and rifle ammo into law enforcement officer's homes. No one was injured during the incidents.

On Wednesday afternoon, police additionally arrested 24-year-old Watson, who is on level III probation, without incident. Officials searched his home, where they say they recovered a 12-gauge shotgun, and a 7.62mm rifle, along with shotgun and rifle ammunition. Joudrey was charged with 1st degree attempted murder, 4 counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, driving under the influence of alcohol, and other related offences. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $320,500 cash only bail.

Watson is also being held at SCI on $330,500 cash only bail. He is charged with 1st degree attempted murder, 4 counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, and other related offences.

Delaware State Police say that they are still investigating a shooting that happened on December 30th on Sharptown Road in Laurel. Anyone with information on that incident is asked to call Det. Kelly at 302-856-5850 x.219, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, or text DSP to 274637 (CRIMES). Tips can also be submitted on the internet at www.tipsubmit.com.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office is holding a press conference on Friday morning to release information about the reported Maryland shootings. Last week, they informed WMDT that there had been a similar shooting of both a Wicomico County, and a Worcester County Sheriff's deputy, involving their private homes. At that time they said that the cases were related, and that the homes had been targeted based on there being a marked police car outside of each of the homes.
