The Delaware State Police have arrested 65-year-old E. Keith Hudson of Milford, Delaware on numerous felony charges following a shooting incident that occurred Wednesday evening in Milford.

On December 28, 2022, at approximately 6:38 p.m., troopers responded to the area of Knollac Drive and Surrey Court regarding a subject shooting a gun several times in the Knollac Acres neighborhood. Troopers learned that this subject, identified as E. Keith Hudson, had walked away from his home while carrying a firearm in a bag. Hudson then called a relative and told him that he was going to shoot somebody. When Hudson was approached by two family members, he pointed a gun at their vehicle and threatened to shoot them. Hudson then shot at three different cars that were being driven by a 50-year-old woman, a 30-year-old woman, and a 51-year-old woman, respectively. No one was struck by gunfire and no one was injured.

Troopers and officers from the Milford Police Department arrived and took Hudson into custody without incident. The firearm was recovered, and Hudson was found to be intoxicated. Hudson was taken to an area hospital for treatment. While at the hospital, Hudson threatened to shoot and kill three troopers.
