Delaware State Police have arrested 30-year-old Deandre Hall of Dagsboro, DE, on weapon and drug-related charges following a suspicious activity complaint Monday evening.

On November 7, 2022, at approximately 4:18 pm, Delaware State Police responded to the area of Woodland Ferry Road and Gum Branch Road for reports of a black male, later identified as Deandre Hall, running down the road with a firearm. Another 911 caller, who was able to provide a physical description of Hall, observed Hall drop the firearm and run into the woods. While Troopers patrolled the area, they observed a male subject matching the physical description that the 911 caller provided.
