Delaware State Police Arrest Man for Shooting Outside Millsboro Bar

Delaware State Police detectives have arrested 19-year-old Ja’shawn Moore of Dover, Delaware, for multiple charges following a shooting in Millsboro, but they are also asking for the public’s help identifying additional suspects.

On June 2, 2023, at approximately 11:06 p.m., troopers responded to Paradise Grill, located at 27344 Bay Road, for a report of shots fired. Troopers arrived and learned that several black men had been fighting with a white man inside the bar. The bouncers escorted the black men outside, but they went back inside and tried to fight the other man again. The white man then left the establishment with two women, and as they drove out of the parking lot the group of black men began running after their car. Gunshots were fired but the car continued driving away and did not stop. Everyone involved left the area.

When troopers arrived, they collected numerous bullet casings from the surrounding area. No injuries were reported, and no suspects were identified. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered the car that was driving away, with three people inside, was hit by gunfire.
