Laurel Man Charged With Attempted Murder After Shooting

Posted: Updated:

BLADES, Del. -  Delaware State Police are saying they have arrested a Laurel man after he shot another man in the parking lot of a Blades bar.

According to reports, at around 1:10 AM, troopers and officers from Blades and Seaford Police Departments were called to Marinas Bar, at 16 North Market Street in Blades Friday morning for a reported shooting.  When they arrived at the scene, they were reportedly informed a 34-year-old male victim had been driven to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital by private vehicle with a gunshot wound to his torso. Witnesses also reportedly informed officers of several suspects involved in the shooting leaving in a black PT Cruiser, heading southbound on Sussex Highway (US13) toward Laurel. Laurel police say they stopped the car, and several subjects, including Donregus Holland were taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 5 where detectives from Troop 4 Criminal Investigations Unit assumed the investigation. Upon searching the vehicle, officers located a .22 caliber revolver under the passenger's side seat.

After conducting interviews, police reportedly found that a fight occurred in the parking lot of the bar and as the 34 year old victim, who is employed by Marinas as security, was attempting to break it up, he was shot in the torso by Holland with the .22 caliber revolver.  Holland then allegedly fled the scene with several other subjects in the PT Cruiser and hid the firearm under the front passenger's seat before they were stopped by Laurel PD. Detectives are there may be more arrests. The victim has reportedly been transferred to another area hospital where he is currently listed in stable condition. Police say Donregus Holland was arrested and charged with attempted murder possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.  He was reportedly committed to SCI on $150,000 cash bond.
