Original post- Delaware State Police are currently investigating an incident in which a 34 year old Lincoln man was shot following an altercation that occurred early this morning in Lincoln.

The investigation began this morning, Saturday, August 13, 2016, at approximately 2:55 a.m., after troopers were called to respond to a residence located in the 10000 block of Crescent Shores Drive, Lincoln, for the report of a shooting which had occurred. Upon their arrival, troopers learned that a 34 year old male resident of the home had been shot from behind in the upper torso area while he was seated in the living room of the home. The victim was treated at the scene by Sussex County Paramedics before being transported by ambulance to the Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his non-life threatening injuries.

According to police, through further investigation troopers learned that the victim had been inside of his residence with two other people, when a male acquaintance of the victim, identified as James A. Satcher, 24, of Milford, arrived at the residence with a female. At some point during the night, a physical altercation occurred between the female who had arrived with Satcher and a second female who was also in the home. The victim then ordered Satcher and the woman he had brought to the house to leave, which they did. Approximately thirty minutes later, James Satcher returned to the house and proceeded to fire several rounds from an unknown make and model gun into the home, striking the victim. Satcher then fled in an unknown direction. There were no other injuries.

Detectives have obtained warrants charging James A. Satcher with Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Reckless Endangering 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.
