Police Update Fairfax Shooting Incident

On Friday (12/23) at approximately 11:00 p.m., officers from the New Castle County Division of Police responded to the area of Devonshire Road and Waverly Road in Fairfax for multiple calls of shots fired.

Officers arrived on scene and located multiple shell casings and an unoccupied vehicle with damage consistent with being shot.  Surveillance footage showed a black Dodge Charger and a gray Ford Taurus at the intersection just moments before a subject exited the Charger and began shooting at the Taurus.

The operator of the Ford Taurus was located later Friday evening and reported he was uninjured.  

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Unit assumed the investigation and it continues to be an active and ongoing investigation.
