Woman shot at planned fight discussed on social media

FELTON — A 19-year-old female remained in critical condition Tuesday following a weekend shooting incident connected to an ongoing feud and fight, Delaware State Police said.

Police said approximately 15 to 25 persons went to the 1300 block of Barney Jenkins Road Sunday to witness a planned fight that had been discussed on social media. Troopers were called to the scene for a shots fired report at approximately 5:58 p.m.

The wounded female was privately transported to a local hospital. Police said no other injuries were reported.
