Lincoln – Delaware State Police are investigating the Saturday shooting of a  Lincoln, Delaware man. Police said that on August 13, 2016, at around 2:55 a.m., troopers were called to respond to a residence located in the 10000 block of Crescent Shores Drive, for the report of a shooting which had occurred.

When troopers arrived they learned that a 34 year old male resident of the home had been shot from behind in the upper torso area while he was seated in the living room of the home, police said. The victim was treated at the scene by Sussex County Paramedics before being transported by ambulance to the Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers said that the victim was inside of his residence with two other people, when a male acquaintance of the victim, James A. Satcher, 24, of Milford, arrived at the residence with a female. At some point during the night, a physical altercation occurred between the female who had arrived with Satcher and a second female who was also in the home. The victim then told Satcher and the woman he had brought to the house to leave, which they did, police said.

Troopers said that approximately thirty minutes later, James Satcher returned to the house and proceeded to fire several rounds from an unknown make and model gun into the home, striking the victim.

Detectives have obtained warrants charging James A. Satcher with Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Reckless Endangering 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.

Satcher is 5’11” tall, weighs 195 lbs., and has black hair and brown eyes.

If anyone has any information as to the location of James Satcher, they are asked to contact 9-1-1 immediately. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
