Riley Braswell, 18, has been committed to the Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, on a $180,000 secured bond.
There were no injuries reported after a robbery victim shot at his assailant Wednesday afternoon.
The suspect was identified by Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman as Riley J. Braswell, 18, of the 200 block of North Governors Avenue.
Hoffman said that at about 2:25 p.m. Aug. 10, two men were walking on Ridgely Street when Braswell came up to them, pulled a handgun and demanded their property.
The men fought with Braswell, who then fired several shots at them; one of the men, who was legally carrying his own firearm, shot back at Braswell, Hoffman said.
Braswell was arrested a short time later.
He is charged with two counts each of first-degree robbery and first-degree reckless endangering, and single counts of possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.
