Suspects in May 13 shooting death returned to Delaware

DOVER — Two Dover men arrested after investigation into a May 13 homicide in the Walker Woods neighborhood have been extradited to Delaware from Philadelphia, authorities said Tuesday.

Damier Harmon, 18, of the first block of Harmony Lane, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, during the commission of a felony, two firearm-by-person-prohibited related counts and second-degree conspiracy, city police said.

Bruce Manlove, 19, of the first block of Harmony Lane, was charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and second-degree conspiracy.

Both men — who had the same Harmony Lane address listed in court records — were arraigned through JP Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach on Monday.

They were earlier arrested by the Philadelphia Police Department on a first-degree robbery charge, city police said, and detectives obtained additional alleged evidence that brought a first-degree murder charge against Mr. Harmon.

A dark colored vehicle was later seen straddling a sidewalk and then towed away after police said it was abandoned.

Two nearby schools were locked down while responding to the alleged incident at 2:29 p.m. that concluded in the Village at Blue Hen Apartments neighborhood off South Little Creek Road, police said.
