Troopers helps U.S. Marshals in Laurel
The Delaware State Police was called to assist the U.S. Marshals Service with a criminal investigation in Laurel after a male suspect suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound. On Thursday, Sept. 11 at 6:48 p.m., the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force (CARFTF) was conducting a criminal investigation attempting to locate two suspects at a residence in the 31000 block of White Street, Laurel. The CARFTF took the adult female suspect into custody and then heard a gunshot from within the residence. The task force was unable to make contact with the adult male suspect inside. The CARFTF contacted the Delaware State Police for assistance. At 8 p.m. the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team made entry into the house and located the male suspect who suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A trooper medic provided emergency medical care. The male suspect was flown by Delaware State Police Aviation Helicopter Trooper 2 to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md. in critical condition. Delaware State Police continue to investigate this incident.
