After shots were fired in a neighborhood near Cheswold Tuesday, Delaware State Police released photographs in an attempt to identify the shooter's car and the pedestrians who were fired on.

At about 4:49 p.m., two pedestrians were walking on Willis Branch Drive in a neighborhood off Moorton Road between Cheswold and Smyrna.

Delaware State Police are trying to identify these pedestrians who were fired upon by someone in a car on Willis Branch Drive, a Dover address off of Moorton Road between Cheswold and Smyrna.

A vehicle pulled up next to the two pedestrians and someone inside began shooting, police said. 

Both the driver and the pedestrians fled the area with no reported injuries. Their identities are unknown.

State police received the report of shots fired after a bullet struck a home on Walters Way in the same neighborhood.

Delaware State Police said this is the suspect's car in a shooting that happened Dec. 22 on Willis Branch Drive, a Dover address off of Moorton Road between Smyrna and Cheswold. No one was injured.

Three people were inside the home and heard two gunshots outside. The occupants then found the bullet in the hallway in the home. Troopers discovered a bullet hole in the corner of the residence, as well, but no one was injured.

Police are asking anyone with information on the identity of the shooter or the pedestrians to call Detective Ford at Troop 3 at 302-698-8569 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information can also be submitted online at delaware.crimestoppersweb.com.
