SUSPECT SHOT, KILLED BY POLICE AFTER CONFRONTATION IN DELAWARE
It happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday.
According to New Castle County police, officers were following a suspect as part of an investigation in Wilmington.
They tried to stop that suspect along 24th and Market Street, but he attempted to flee.
“The officers attempted to stop him, the suspect would not stop,” New Castle County Police Officer J.P. Piser said.
The man then crashed in the area of Philadelphia Pike and Washington Street Extension, near St. Helena’s Church and State Police Barracks in Claymont.
Piser says the suspect then fled on foot, with officers chasing him.
At one point there was a confrontation, investigators say, which ended with the suspect being shot and killed by police.
“It was like a ‘pow.’ You don’t kind of put together until you see everything out here,” witness Ann Marie Foraker said.
It is not known if the suspect was armed.
Officers were taken to the hospital for medical evaluation, police say, but the number of officers and their conditions were not released.
There was no immediate word on the name of the man killed or why he was under investigation.
Market Street is closed in the area between 24th & 26th streets.
