DOVER, Del. - After three seemingly related shootings in one night, Police arrested two teenagers. Dover Police say on Saturday night, shortly after 11:00 PM, they were called about gunshots being fired into a Spruance Road home.

An investigation showed that the shooter was reportedly 18-year-old Isaiah Thomas, of Magnolia, who was apparently looking for retaliation for an earlier incident at the Whatcoat Apartments. Inside the home were an adult woman and her six grandchildren. During the shooting no one was hurt, but the victim's vehicle, home, and windows were both hit. At the scene, Police reportedly recovered .380 caliber shell casings.

Later that night, around 12:40 AM on Sunday, Dover Police responded to another call for shots fired, but this time on Whatcoat Drive, where they found shots fired into the Eastside of the building. No one was injured during this incident. An investigation showed that the suspect was seen getting into a silver Nissan Versa. Police say they also found .380 caliber shell casings at this location.

A little before 3:00 AM, officers stopped a silver Nissan Versa on Route 13, near Court Street, with Thomas as the passenger and a 17-year-old of Magnolia, driving. During the stop, officers say they smelt marijuana and investigated. According to the report, on Thomas they found .380 caliber handgun, more than 100 grams of marijuana, baggies, a scale, and cash. Both teens were arrested. Police say that the 17-year-old was the driver in both incidents, and conspired with Thomas to commit the shootings.

Thomas is charged with a slew of offenses including possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of firearm/ammunition by person prohibited, and possession with intent to deliver marijuana. He is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $189,750 bond.

The 17-year-old was also charged, with reckless endangering, criminal mischief, and conspiracy. He is being held at Stevenson House on $22,500 bond.
