Shots were being fired as an SUV was racing toward the exit from the subdivision

Detectives with the Delaware State Police are investigating a shooting in the Capitol Park subdivision, just outside the Dover city limits.

Division spokesman Sgt. Richard Bratz said the incident took place at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. Troopers learned a light-colored SUV was speeding down President Drive toward the exit onto Route 1 at the same time gunfire was heard.

Police later found the siding of one home had been punctured by at least one round which did not penetrate the interior of the building.

A man and woman were inside the home, Bratz said. The woman was treated at a nearby hospital for a minor wound she sustained while ducking from the gunfire.

There are no suspects at this time, Bratz said.
