Milford shooting incident under investigation


MILFORD — A home was struck by gunfire at least four times Monday night.

Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Heather Pepper said troopers responded to the 6000 block of Slaughter Beach Road at approximately 7:07 p.m. for reports of shots fired at a residence.

The investigation determined two individuals were inside the home when an unknown vehicle drove by and fired several rounds in the direction of their residence, Cpl. Pepper said. One of the rounds entered through the east wall, traveled through the living room, and hit an object sitting in the living room, authorities said.

A female resident was sitting in the living room at the time the incident occurred but was uninjured.

A canvas of the area revealed multiple shell casings on Slaughter Beach Road. No vehicle or suspect information was released.

DSP asks anyone with information to contact Detective Hickman with the Troop 4 Criminal Investigative Unit at 752-3856. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or online.
