Milford man indicted for November Dover killing

DOVER — A Milford man was indicted Monday on a first-degree murder charge regarding a Nov. 1, 2015, shooting near downtown Dover, according to court documents.

Rondree Campbell, 22 at the time of the alleged incident, was arrested three days after a 36-year-old Middletown man was shot to death in the South New Street area, police said.

Investigation found that a suspect fired multiple gunshots, left and then returned approximately 10 minutes later and shot a weapon, with one round fatally striking a man who was in the area helping a family member move, police said.

The Dover Police Department noted the homicide was the city’s record seventh overall in 2015. Authorities had investigated 32 shootings at the time, which was described as an increase,

Some of the second round of shots struck a unit block residence occupied by multiple family members, police said. Nine first-degree reckless endangering charges resulted, according to court documents.

In Kent County Superior Court, Mr. Campbell also was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, a .22 caliber revolver and possession of a firearm by person prohibited.

Court papers indicated Mr. Campbell was convicted of a felony carrying a concealed deadly weapon charge on June 17, 2015, and thus prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Deputy Attorneys General Ken Haltom and Nicole Hartman signed the indictment for the state.

Mr. Campbell was arrested without incident as he reported to the Dover Probation and Parole office, police said.

Police said they believed the shooting occurred as retaliation for an earlier physical confrontation. They said the man who died was not involved in the incident.
