The victim has been identified as Rodney Miller, 25, of Dover.

Dover police are investigating a homicide at about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28 at the Towne Point Apartments, Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said.

A Dover officer who heard gunshots at the complex at 820 Carvel Drive checked the area and found a vehicle in a rear parking lot. Inside, the officer discovered 25-year-old Rodney Miller suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Miller was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hoffman said Miller was a Dover resident, but that he did not live in the apartments.

The shooting is Dover’s second homicide of the year; on Jan. 10, 31-year-old Javan Cale was shot to death at the Clearfield apartments on Haman Drive. Two Maryland residents were arrested later that month for the crime.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Dover police at 736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips also may be submitted through Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333, online at or through the Dover Police Department MyPD app.
