Dover man sentenced for role in shooting death

DOVER – A Dover man received six years in prison Tuesday morning for his role in the shooting death of Dequan Dukes on June 27, 2017.

After incarceration, Dover resident Gregory Sellers will serve a year of Level IV work release followed by a year of Level III probation. He was given credit for time served during Superior Court sentencing and must complete the Key program, Judge Jeffrey C. Clark determined.

Charges included first-degree attempted robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and second-degree conspiracy.
Sellers was ordered to have no contact with family victims and three co-defendants.

The incident at Pine Grove Apartments involved the 21-year-old Mr. Dukes and Brett Scott exchanging gunfire; Mr. Dukes was mortally wounded and Scott shot multiple times, Dover Police said at the time.

Deputy Attorneys General Jason C. Cohee and Stephen E. Smith prosecuted the case, assisted by Dover PD detective Stephen Boone and paralegal Sue Balik. Attorney Gene Maurer represented the defendant.
