Police investigate shooting in Dover

Dover police are investigating a shooting incident that sent one man to a local hospital.

Investigators say the shooting happened Thursday night by the unit block of Village Drive, in The Hamlet. We're told the 21-year-old victim was jogging back to his residence to retrieve money to pay a tab at Tom's Bullpen. That's when an unknown suspect, hanging out of a passenger window, shot the victim with a so-called "bird shot."

The victim is being treated for several small pellets in his head and face at Kent General Hospital. Officials say his injuries are non-life-threatening.

Minor damage was caused to a residence on Village Drive. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7130 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Callers may remain anonymous.
