Delaware State Police seek to ID suspect wanted in Rehoboth shooting

Delaware State Police are continuing their investigation into a shooting in Rehoboth Beach and are asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect allegedly involved.

According to Delaware State Police, the incident occurred around 12 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 21 as troopers responded to The Pond Bar and Grill on Coastal Highway for reports of people fighting in the parking lot.

Within two minutes, Sussex County Emergency Operations Center (9-1-1) updated the responding troopers that shots were fired.

When police arrived they learned one male victim had been shot during the commotion, but had already left the area in a privately owned vehicle and traveled to Beebe Medical Center for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his leg. No other victims were located, according to police.

A search of the crime scene was conducted and 32 shell casings were located in the parking lot. Two vehicles were struck as well as the front window of the bar, according to police. It was later determined that a round struck a second floor room in the Comfort Inn next door.

Later that morning, around 12:24 a.m., police say another call was received by the Emergency Operations Center advising there were shots fired at the Wawa on Wolfe Neck Road in Rehoboth. In this incident, there were no reported victims of the gunfire and several empty shell casings were located outside the business in the parking lot.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects involved are urged to contact police.
