The Delaware State Police are currently investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred last evening in the limits of Milford.

The incident occurred on January 5, 2020 at approximately 6:20 p.m., when Milford Police Officers were dispatched to Linstone Lane, Silver Lake Estates Apartments, Milford, for a report of a domestic incident involving weapons. As Milford Police Officers arrived at the apartment, the male suspect came out of the apartment and into the hallway, advancing at Police Officers while brandishing a large knife. Both Police Officers reacted to the threat by shooting the suspect with their departmental issued handguns.

The suspect became incapacitated and the officers immediately issued first aid to the suspect, a 27-year-old male from Dover, DE. The suspect was transported to the Bayhealth Sussex Campus where he was pronounced deceased. His name is being withheld at this time pending the notification of next of kin.

The Police Officers did not sustain injury as a result of this incident and there were no other reports of injuries as a result of the domestic incident.

At the request of the Milford Police Department, the investigation into this incident is being conducted by the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit.
