Chester Man To Serve Life In Delaware Prison

A Chester man has been sentenced for several convictions following a fatal domestic-related shooting.

Officials said on December 15, Dashan Freeman, 41, was sentenced to two life terms plus 19 years in prison in New Castle County Superior Court for convictions of Burglary 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, two counts of Murder 1st Degree, and three counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. This sentence follows an investigation into the fatal shooting of Vincent Flowers, 39, and the wounding of the defendant’s ex-girlfriend on June 25, 2020. 
On June 25, 2020, Freeman, who was living in Wilmington at the time, entered his ex-girlfriend’s home on East 13th Street in Wilmington. Suspecting his ex-girlfriend was with another romantic partner, Freeman pulled out a gun and went upstairs, shooting her once in the chest when he encountered her in the hallway. As she fled, Freeman followed her to the bedroom, where he shot Flowers five times, striking his neck, arm, leg, and back as he was begging for his life. Flowers died of his wounds shortly after. The second victim was treated at Christiana Hospital, where she recovered.
