A suspect has been arrested following a shooting in Rehoboth Beach early Monday morning.
Delaware State Police say 40-year-old Allan Simms of Rehoboth Beach got into an argument with a 40-year-old victim at the parking lot of the YMCA on Church Street just after midnight on July 4. The argument led to a physical fight that left minor injuries on the victim.
