Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

The Delaware State Police arrested 18-year-old Tyler Schuman of Jacksonville, Florida after he shot into an occupied Felton home yesterday morning.

On January 31, 2023, at approximately 6:54 a.m., troopers responded to a residence on the 100 block of Lake Drive regarding a report of gunshots being fired into the house. When they arrived, troopers learned that the home had been struck several times by shots that were fired from the outside. The residence was occupied by a 43-year-old man, a 40-year-old woman, and three children at the time. No one in the home was hit by gunfire or injured.

Detectives determined that a black Chevrolet Malibu was a suspect vehicle associated with this incident. At approximately 10:20 a.m. a trooper on patrol found the Malibu near the Dairy Queen in Camden. The trooper conducted a traffic stop and contacted the driver and only occupant, identified as Tyler Schuman. Schuman was subsequently taken into custody without incident. A loaded Glock handgun was found underneath the driver’s seat and numerous shell casings were found in the car.

Detectives later discovered that Schuman had driven to the parking lot of the Positive Outcomes Charter School in Camden after the shooting but prior to the police learning about his involvement with this incident. Schuman was in the parking lot for a brief period before leaving the area, and he did not have any contact with the school itself.

Schuman was taken to Troop 3 and charged with the following crimes:

  • Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony (Felony)
  • Possession of a Firearm by a Person Under 21 (Felony)
  • Possession of Ammunition by a Person Under 21 (Felony)
  • Carrying a Concealed Firearm (Felony)
  • Possession of a Weapon in a Safe School Zone (Felon)
  • Reckless Endangering First Degree (Felony) – 5 counts

Schuman was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $100,000 cash bond.
