David I.J. Brown was taken into custody at his home.
Troopers with the Delaware State Police Troop 3 have arrested a Dover-area man following a shooting.
Working with representatives from Delaware Probation and Parole, the troopers arrested David I. Brown, 21, Monday afternoon, division spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said.
The arrest stems from an incident that took place at about 4:51 p.m. April 16 in the 100 block of Mannerling Drive, off Route 10. Troopers arriving to investigate a shooting complaint were told a man had been taken by emergency medical services to a local hospital with a gunshot wound.
Police determined Brown had gone to the home, went inside without permission, broke down a bedroom door and assaulted a 19-year-old woman. Brown and the woman continued fighting outside the home, where the victim was shot.
Brown ran from the scene before police arrived, Jaffe said, but was arrested without incident at his Dover home.
He is charged with Assault First Degree, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Home Invasion, Offensive Touching, and Criminal Mischief.
He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 7 and committed to the Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, on $75,500 cash-only bond.
The shooting remains under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to call the DSP Major Crimes Unit, Det. Blomquist, at 302-698-8426.
