Woman grazed in Wilmington shooting

September 06, 2015



A woman apparently was grazed in a shooting incident Saturday in Wilmington, city police said Sunday.

Officers were dispatched about 10:10 p.m. after a caller reported shots fired – also detected by the city’s ShotSpotter system – in the area of Seventh and Monroe streets, Sgt. Andrea Janvier said.

As they arrived, police were directed by people in the area to a home in the 700 block of W. Seventh St., Janvier said.

Inside the home, they found a 33-year-old woman “who was found to be suffering from what appeared to be a minor graze wound or abrasion to her left foot,” she said.

The injured woman was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington, where she was in good condition, Janvier said.

Assisting officers determined that the location of the shooting was in the 600 block of N. Monroe St., she said.

No suspect information was available.

As investigation continues, Janvier said anyone with information is asked to call Detective Thomas Curley at (302) 576-3620.

Information also may be sent in texts starting with TIP WILMINGTON to 888777, called to the Wilmington Police Confidential Tip Line at (302) 576-3990 and provided through Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333 or www.tipsubmit.com.
