Police: Man Charged In 2021 Dover Shooting At Royal Farms

The Dover Police Department has arrested Dion Williams,30, in the August 2021 shooting that occurred during a fight at a Royal Farms, according to Public Information Office
Sergeant Mark Hoffman.

Back in August Hoffman said the Dover Police Department was investigating a shooting that occurred inside a Royal Farms convenience store.  At approximately 1:59 a.m., officers responded to the business for a report of shots fired.  During interviews with store employees and reviewing video footage, it was determined that two males were engaged in a fight inside of the business.

During the altercation, a single shot was heard and everyone fled the business.  While officers were on scene, a 35-year-old male arrived by private vehicle at Bayhealth Kent Campus with a gunshot wound to the right pelvic area. The victim told officers that he was at a local establishment prior to Royal Farms and had no altercations or issues with anyone and that he was randomly confronted at Royal Farms, according to Hoffman.

Williams turned himself into the Dover Police Department on May 31, 2022 at 8:40 p.m. and was committed to SCI on a $142,000 cash bond on the following offenses:
