Hartly man struck by drive-by gunfire

HARTLY — Delaware State Police detectives are investigating a shooting that took place late Saturday and sent a 25-year-old man to the hospital.

Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said the investigation began around 11:43 p.m. when an area hospital called the Kent County Emergency Operations Center advising there was a male subject in the emergency room with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Master Cpl. Fournier said troopers went to the hospital and contacted a neighbor that drove the victim to the emergency room.

The neighbor informed the troopers that the victim was working on a vehicle parked outside his home in the 6000 block of Halltown Road when he was struck by gunfire from someone who drove by in an unknown make and model vehicle.

The neighbor also heard the gunshots and was contacted by the victim, who ran to the neighbor’s house after he was shot.

There was no description of the suspect available Sunday, and the vehicle could only be described as a black passenger car.

The incident remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police Troop 3 Criminal Investigation Unit. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact DetectiveP. Campbell by calling 302-698-8504.

Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or here.
