Incident #: 50-14-7216 Date/Time: Wednesday, March 26 at 9:26pm
Location: 500-600 Block of South State Street, Dover, DE
Narrative: At approximately 9:26pm on Wednesday night, officers responded to the Christ Episcopal Church located in the 500 block of South State Street for a report of two subjects pulling on random car door handles in an attempt to gain entry. As officers arrived, several witnesses advised that the subjects had fled towards the Bayhealth Kent General Hospital parking lot. As officers checked the parking lot, they observed a subject later identified as Davonta Brown, flee from behind a trash dumpster in the parking lot. Officers gave chase, apprehending Brown moments later. While the officers chased Brown, another subject later identified as Kenneth Fisher, also fled from behind the same dumpster as Brown. Both Brown and Fisher were taken into custody without further incident. As the officers chased Brown, they observed him throw an object under a tree in the area. Further investigation by the officers led to the discovery of a loaded H&R Model 676 .22 caliber revolver. The revolver also had an altered serial number. A check into Brown and Fisher’s criminal history revealed that both parties are prohibited from possessing a firearm due to previous felony convictions.
