Witnesses mum in Dover nightclub shooting

DOVER — Details remained sketchy Monday about a two-victim shooting that occurred early Sunday morning at a Dover nightclub, police said.

Two men ages 25 and 22 were each wounded in the right leg during an incident at approximately 1:25 a.m. at Allure Night Club at 865 N. DuPont Highway, Dover Police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said Monday.

The men, suffering non-life threatening injuries, were taken to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital in Dover via private transportation afterward.

According to Cpl. Hoffman, investigators talked to the wounded men and “[a]s far as we can tell, they provided some information about the incident.”

While a crowd numbering in the hundreds was at the scene when five or six shots were fired, the police spokesman said, “[n]one have come forward as of yet. Officers attempted to interview people that night, without success.”

Thus, police said, there was no updated information to provide about a suspected shooter or shooters.

On Monday, police were checking to see if surveillance video was available at the site that was formerly Bubba’s nightclub.

No property damage was reported to police.

Authorities said at least one shooting victim may have been released from the hospital and the other, in stable condition, may have needed surgery to repair an injury.

Police asked anyone with information to call 736-7111. Callers may remain anonymous.

Tips can also be submitted to law enforcement through tip lines maintained by Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, online at www.tipsubmit.com or through the Dover PD MyPD Mobile App.
