Milford Police investigate recent shootings, requests public’s help

MILFORD – Milford Police detectives are asking the public’s help with information relating to a shooting that occurred on July 18, just after midnight, in the area of US 113 and N.W. 10th St.

According to Det. Dwight Young, an investigation revealed that four victims were traveling in a vehicle together northbound on US 113 and the vehicle came to a stop near the intersection at a traffic light.

“While stopped, a light-colored minivan pulled up next to the victims’ vehicle. Multiple gunshots were then fired from the minivan at the victims’ vehicle. The first victim was shot multiple times, the second victim was struck by a round that first traveled through the first victim’s body. The third and fourth victims were just barely missed by the gunshots as the rounds struck the windows and seats surrounding them,” said Det. Young.

The minivan then fled northbound on US 113. The two victims who were shot were treated at Milford Bayhealth Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and later released.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Dwight Young or Det. John Horsman of the Milford Police Department Criminal Division at 302-422-8081 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or or submit tips through the MyPD mobile app.
