Milford PD Looking For Those Involved In Brazen Gunfight Saturday

On Saturday, January 30, 2021, at approximately 1:19 am, officers from the Milford Police Department’s Patrol Division responded to a vacant commercial building in the 300 block of Milford-Harrington Highway (SR 14) to a report of a large fight, according to Sgt. Robert Masten.

Masten said the crowd was dispersing as the initial officers arrived. As officers investigated they learned that just east of this incident several individuals exchanged gunfire near the intersection of South DuPont Boulevard (US Rt 113) and Milford-Harrington Highway (SR 14). This reportedly occurred shortly after individuals began leaving the initial altercation, said Masten.

Masten said individuals involved in the exchange of gunfire fled and were unable to be located. It’s unknown if anyone was injured in the gunfire exchange.

A 2001 Honda Accord passing the scene at the time of the gunfire was damaged by rounds.

Two vehicles fleeing the scene as the officers arrived collided leaving one vehicle with disabling damage. The second vehicle fled and has yet to be located.

Milford Police is asking anyone with information about this crime to call 302-422-8081.
