Two In Custody For April 2nd Dover Shooting

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Delaware State Police say two Dover residents are in custody after detectives determined they were responsible for a late-night robbery that took place on April 2. 

According to reports, the incident occurred at 11:30 PM when a male victim walked into the Royal Farms store at 6 West Lebanon Road, bleeding from his head and reporting he had been shot. 

Police say the 34-year-old victim informed troopers that he had been traveling southbound on South State Street near Moore's Lake when a male dressed in all black clothing walked in front of his vehicle.  The victim rolled down his window and the suspect approached the driver's side brandishing a handgun and demanding his money.  The victim reportedly complied and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash.  The suspect then demanded more money and when the victim was unable to produce any, the suspect allegedly fired his weapon, grazing the victim's forehead, then fled in an unknown direction.  The victim was reportedly transported to Kent General Hospital where he was treated and released for the non-life-threatening wound.

Detectives from Troop 3 say they were able to determine the robbery was committed by Calvin Byrd, 23. Byrd and his girlfriend, Jasmine Henry, 18, were reportedly taken into custody during a traffic stop Friday evening.

Detectives say they concluded the pair had planned the robbery, during which Byrd used a stolen handgun. Byrd was reportedly committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Institute on a violation of probation warrant. Detectives have reportedly obtained a warrant charging him with robbery and related offenses. Police say Henry was charged with robbery first degree, assault first degree, and conspiracy second degree. She was reportedly committed to Baylor Women's Correctional Institute on $52,000 cash bail.
