DOVER — Three teenagers have been arrested by Dover police and charged for their alleged roles in a double-shooting incident that took place in Capitol Green on Friday.

Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said the teens were arrested Saturday after the suspected vehicle involved in the shooting, described as a white Buick Rendezvous, was located at a residence in the nearby Capitol Park neighborhood.

Eugene Riley, 18, from Houston, Jamal Jones, 17, of Dover, and Charles Livingston, 16, of Leipsic, were all taken into custody without incident by Dover police.

“For our officers to be able to locate the vehicle, it was a nice little find,” Master Cpl. Hoffman said. “You never know what to expect with these kinds of investigations. It all depends on the cooperation level you receive.”
