Two Shot Filming Rap Video, Victim Refuses Medical Treatment

Dover – Two men were wounded in a shooting that occurred in the Capitol Green neighborhood at 2:09 p.m. yesterday, Wednesday May 24, 2017, according to Dover Police Spokesman mark Hoffman.

Hoffman said officers responded to the area for multiple reports of shots fired.  Upon arrival, officers were advised that one victim had run into the Thomas Collins building (Delaware Division Of Revenue) with a gunshot wound to his hand.

The victim advised that he was outside filming a rap video when an unknown suspect shot at him.  This person refused medical treatment for his injury.  Officials at Kent General Hospital then notified police that a second victim had been transported to the Emergency Room for a gunshot wound to his lower left leg.

The second victim advised he ran to the parking lot of Dunkin’ Donuts at East Water Street and South DuPont Highway when an unknown person took him to the hospital.  Both victims have been minimally cooperative with police to this point in the investigation.  Both victims are 28-year-old males.
