Delaware State Police have identified 29-year-old Sheldon C. Francis of Middletown, as the suspect in the shooting of an elderly couple on the grounds of the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery on Friday.
A married couple from Maryland ages 85 and 86 “visiting the grave of their son” were victims of a deadly shooting at a veterans cemetery in Delaware. The Suspect was described as a heavyset black male aged 29, dressed in all black with a black face mask, carrying a rifle with a scope. The suspect was later seen in a wooded area before engaging in a shootout with police officers. The suspect was found deceased with gunshot wounds.
Our source continued by saying: “He’s 29. And no connection (to the victims) at all. He was wearing a black hoodie black pants, black mask, hood up, black gloves, black boots.”
“I know the guy had a lot of ammo. It seems as if he set himself up in the ditches with ammo because the police were saying that their drone could see him but they couldn’t get eyes on him. He had to have planned this for a while because most people don’t know those woods like that.”
