Two shootings, one injured

Officers heard gunshots on the east side of Dover, possibly in the area of the Town Pointe community, at about 11:23 p.m June 2. Officers could not locate a scene, but about ten minutes later, an 18-year-old man arrived at Kent General Hospital by private vehicle with a gunshot wound to his chest and arm.

The victim was uncooperative with detectives and only said he was walking through a neighborhood in Dover when he was shot, police said. The victim is in stable condition.

Officers responded to the 100 block of Hampton Drive for a report of shots fired at about 1:51 a.m. When they arrived, officers found a home that was struck multiple times. No injuries were reported.

The resident of the home that was struck did not call police and provided conflicting information to detectives. A witness in the neighborhood said that they saw two black male suspects (one in a red hooded sweatshirt and one in a black hooded sweatshirt) stand in front of the home struck by gunfire, remove a firearm and shoot several times before running west.
