A fatal shootout occurred this past Sunday at a party in Dover killing a Delaware State student.

20-year-old Junior, Devin Wright, was shot in the head and another man, 22 years old was shot in the shoulder; both were rushed to the hospital.

This marked the 27th and 28th shooting in Dover, DE this year which surpasses the total number of shooting victims in all of 2019.

Police were invited to Schutte Park around 9:39 pm after being called about gun shots.

The paramedics took both of the victims to Bay Health where Mr. Wright was pronounced dead and the other man in critical condition.

DSU mourned the loss of their fallen hornet and held a Virgil in honor of him on September 28th, at the DSU Circle.

“University community is profoundly saddened and troubled by tragic death of Devin Wright and the event surrounding his death,” said Carlos Holmes, Delaware State’s spokesman.

Delaware Gov. John Carney’s recent modification to his state emergency policies allows outdoor gatherings up to 250 people. It is still being deliberated if Delaware State would be able to host events due to the fact that they violated this order.

Delaware State University President, Tony Allen, extended condolences to the family of Devin Wright and the entire university community.
