Two people have been injured in an early morning March 30 shooting in The Hamlet.


Dover Police are investigating the shooting of two people in an apparently unprovoked attack in a Dover subdivision.

The incident occurred at approximately 1:10 a.m. March 30, while the victims were parked in the vicinity of Old Forge and Quail Hollow Drive, The Hamlet, said police spokesman Lt. Tim Stump.

The investigation indicated a man approached the pair and fired a single shotgun blast, Stump said.

A 22-year-old man received injuries to his face and was taken to Christiana Hospital, Newark, for surgery. He was listed in critical but stable condition, Stump said.

The second victim, a 20-year-old woman, was shot in the arm and torso; she was admitted to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital in stable condition.

The suspect was described as a tall black man, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Dover Police at 736-7111.
