County Police Classify Reported Shooting Incident As Aggravated Assault

Details surrounding a reported Newark-Area shooting remain unclear.

Just after 6:00 Tuesday evening, October 29, 2019, New Castle County Police responded to the unit block of Kings Circle just off Old Baltimore Pike.

Initial reports from the scene indicated that a man had been shot at that location. Witnesses also reported that a vehicle had been struck by gunfire multiple times.

During the investigation, over a dozen County Officers were on scene searching an area cordoned off by crime scene tape.

As of Friday morning, police have yet to confirm the details surrounding the incident.

A posting on lists the incident as an Aggravated Assault/Non-Family incident. This would fall in line with a shooting incident.

This is a Developing Story. We will post additional details as become available.
