DOVER, Del. – Dover Police are investigating a late night shooting that injured one Wednesday night.

Police say the incident took place shortly before midnight in the 100 blocks of South New Street and South Queen Street. Officers were checking the area when they learned that a 23-year-old male victim arrived at Bayhealth Kent Campus with a gunshot wound to his right forearm. The victim was reportedly uncooperative with detectives and provided multiple versions of the incident, stating that it happened in the area of Reed Street, between South Bradford Street and South Governors Avenue.

Downtown surveillance video showed that no incident took place in the area where the victim stated, but showed that the victim was in the 100 block of South New Street when an unknown male ran into the area. At that time, several people were seen fleeing on foot, which is believed to be when shots were fired and the male victim was hit.

Police are asking anyone with information on this incident to call Dover PD at 302-736-7130 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted online.
