MILFORD, Del. - The standoff between an alleged shooter and police in Milford, DE has ended.

The incident began on Sunday at approximately 2:18 PM, when troopers received a call about a subject shot and found lying in a yard on the 5000 block of Williamsville Road in Milford.   Then police say the suspect locked himself inside the home.

According to Delaware State Police, the body of the 42-year-old male suspect was found inside the home after the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team forced their way into the residence. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and the death is currently being investigated as a suicide. The 72-year-old male shooting victim, found lying in the yard by a passerby, was transported to Milford Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Delaware State Police spokesman, Cpl. Gary Fournier tells WMDT, the 42 year-old male subject was renting the home from his 72 year old victim.  The identities of the victim and suspect are expected to be released pending notification of next of kin.

Residents have been permitted to return to their homes, but Williamsville Road between Holly Hill Road and Griffiths Pond Road will remain closed while the investigation continues.
