Suspect Still On The Loose After Harrington Shooting

Posted: Updated:

HARRINGTON, Del. - A Delaware man is in the hospital, after a drive-by-style shooting at his home in Kent County.  His alleged shooter remains unidentified and on the loose.

"About one o'clock this morning, I heard bang bang bang bang bang," says Roxie, who lives two homes away from where the shooting happened.
Gunfire rang out overnight at a trailer home on the 2000 block of Bloomfield Drive.

According to Cpl. John Day with the Delaware State Police, "somebody drove by the residence, and from that vehicle, going by the residence, somebody fired several shots."

Two bullets pierced a front window, one hitting a 34-year-old man in his upper body.  Police say he's recovering at a local hospital.

Neighbors say he'd moved to the street less than a year ago.

"He's nice as can be," says Karen.

Hours after the incident, Karen, who lives just feet from where bullets went into the home, was still shaken up.  

"You could feel the vibration.  That's...that's the scary part.  It was that close to us," she says.

Police say they don't know much about why this happened, though they don't believe the shooting was random.   It may not have been random, but it was a shock for residents.
"Nothing happens like that around here.  I mean, I lived here four years," says Roxie.

No motive, no ID on the suspect, no shooter in all has Karen, who's only been living here for a few months, feeling "uneasy...I guess that's the only word you could really use now because you don't know what to expect next."

There is a security camera on the business next door to where the shooting happened, but no video could be pulled from it that might aid in the investigation.

Anyone who does have information is asked to contact Delaware State Police at 1-800-TIP-3333.
