The shootings took place Monday, April 17

Three men, including the apparent victim of a home invasion, have been shot at a local apartment complex.

Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said the shootings took place at about 2:09 p.m. Monday, April 17 at the Towne Point Apartments, 820 Carvel Drive.

Dover police initially fielded a call about an active home invasion inside I Building, Hoffman said. While officers were headed to the scene, several calls were received about gunshots being fired in the area. Officers arrived to find two men lying on the ground between I and G Buildings suffering from gunshot wounds.

One of those men was a victim of the home invasion who had exchanged gunfire with multiple suspects. The second man was a suspect from the home invasion. Several hours later, a third person suffering from gunshot wounds arrived at Christiana Hospital. Police learned this individual was involved in the home invasion and exchange of gunfire that followed, Hoffman said.

Due to the ongoing inquiry, the department will not release further information at this time, but additional data will be published once the investigation is completed, he added.
