No injuries were reported in the early morning incident.
Residents of a mobile home successfully resisted the efforts of two armed gunmen to force their way inside their home Friday.
The incident took place at about 1:08 a.m. as officers were called to the East Dover Estates at 1061 S. Little Creek Road, Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said.
The victim, a 35-year-old woman, said two men tried to force their way in through a back door and one fired at least one shot into the home.
There were no injuries, Hoffman added.
The only description of the suspects was that they both were black men, one about 6 feet in height, medium build and wearing a maroon-colored sweater and jeans.
