Magnolia man indicted after alleged shooting incident

DOVER — A Magnolia man was indicted on multiple felonies last week following an investigation into a shots fired complaint at a Dover apartment complex on Sept. 1, 2017.

Khalil-Mahl T. Hanzer

Khalil-Mahl T. Hanzer was 23 years old when the alleged incident occurred last fall and supposedly fired a weapon inside an apartment before fleeing. He also allegedly struck a female in the head with a firearm, the Delaware State Police said at the time.

Charges include possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, three counts each of second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangering, and aggravated menacing, and possession of a weapon with a removed, altered or obliterated serial number.

Police said Mr. Hanzer was taken into custody when leaving a residence at Alder Park Apartments on Oct. 17, 2017. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach and initially committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna on $154,000.00 cash bond.

• Milford resident Antonio C. Tyler was indicted in connection with a high-speed vehicle chase involving Dover Police on Nov. 3, 2017, according to court documents.

Authorities said Mr. Tyler, 38, was allegedly seen driving a white Hyundai Sonata in the 400 block of S. New Street when it struck a curb at 2:32 a.m. Police said an attempted vehicle stop failed and pursuit speeds reached faster than 100 mph before the chase was discontinued.

Mr. Tyler was later apprehended by the Delaware State Police at his residence in the unit block of Whispering Oak Drive, authorities said.

Charges included disregarding a police officer’s signal, illegal possession of a controlled substance (PCP), possession of drug paraphernalia, DUI of alcohol, driving while suspended or revoked, failure to have insurance identification in possession, failure to have registration card in possession, improper lane change, unreasonable speed and failure to stop at a red light.
