SEAFORD, Del. – Police say two people are facing attempted murder charges after they allegedly shot a man Sunday night.

We’re told the shooting happened shortly before 11 p.m., in the 400 block of Pine Street in Seaford. On arrival, police found the victim with a single gunshot wound and an occupied residence damaged by numerous rounds of gunfire. Further investigation revealed that a vehicle occupied by several suspects drove past the residence and fired a weapon multiple times, hitting the residence and seriously injuring one person.

A Delaware State Police trooper spotted the vehicle a short time later and attempted to stop it, but was led on a chase instead. The chase ended in Georgetown, at which point all suspects fled on foot. Police were able to apprehend two of the suspects, 29-year-old Duckens Lima and 18-year-old Devon Reynolds, and also found a rifle nearby that was reportedly discarded from the vehicle during the chase.

The pair were arrested for first degree attempted murder, first degree conspiracy, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, eight counts of first degree reckless endangering, tampering with physical evidence, endangering the welfare of a child, and two counts of criminal mischief.

Police say Lima was held on $617,200 cash bail, while Reynolds was held on $317,200 cash bail.

The investigation is still ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call the Seaford Police Department at 302-629-6644.
