Vehicle Involved In Shooting Flees From Dover Police, Crashes Injuring Four: Police

The Dover Police Department arrested a 23-year-old Dover man following a vehicle pursuit through the city on June 28th, according to Public Information Officer
Sergeant Mark Hoffman.

Hoffman said officers located a GMC Terrain that was involved in a June 24th shooting in the parking lot of the Delaware Probation and Parole building at 511 Maple Parkway.

The shooting incident occurred on Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Bicentennial Boulevard and Declaration Drive.  Officers were called to the area for reports of shots being fired.  The investigation revealed that a Chevrolet Trailblazer pulled in front of a GMC Terrain at the intersection.  A subject in the GMC Terrain fired multiple rounds in the direction of the Trailblazer and both then fled the area.  Officers located the Trailblazer in a nearby neighborhood with multiple bullet holes in it and contacted the owner.  The owner was uncooperative with police other than to say that an argument had occurred in The Hamlet Shopping Center (corner of Walker Road and McKee Road) prior to the shooting, said Hoffman.  Detectives were able to confirm that both vehicles were in the shopping center using video surveillance but were unable to determine if an altercation occurred.

No injuries or further damage was reported as a result of gunfire.  A mailbox in the area was struck by a fleeing vehicle.

When officers attempted to contact the operator, Kyree Robinson, on Monday the vehicle fled. Robinson led officers throughout various parts of the city during the pursuit, which ended when Robinson collided with three other vehicles at the intersection of Saulsbury Road and Forrest Avenue as he was traveling east on Forrest Avenue. Robinson was quickly taken into custody by officers.

As a result of the collision, multiple persons were treated for minor injuries:
-67-year-old female
-74-year-old male
-51-year-old female
-63-year-old female

Robinson was committed to SCI on a $3,300 secured bond on the following charges:
-Disregard a Police Officer Signal
-Resisting Arrest
-Vehicular Assault 3rd Degree (4x)
-Reckless Driving (3x)
-23 Various Traffic Offenses

Additional charges may be added as the investigation progresses, said Hoffman.
