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.
We reached out to a source close to the the situation in Delaware. Our source expressed frustration with how the following information was being withheld from the public. Below is a direct account of the situation from a reliable source close to the incident.
“The shooter pulled up in a Honda, got out, was in all black and approached Mr and Mrs [redacted], shot Mrs [redacted] first, then Mr [redacted], then immediately ran to the woods.”
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.”
“The police were saying “Hes trying to take our drone out!” And then my [redacted] had to hang up on me.”
“One of the grounds crew, his name is [redacted], heard over the radio what was happening. While everyone else was running for cover he ran, got in his truck, raced towards the scene, towards the shooter who was running into the woods and he gave CPR to the two victims. And [redacted] is a VOLUNTEER. He doesn’t even get paid to be there. He’s served his country in every way possible.”
Our source expressed frustration with the state gun laws barring security from bringing firearms to the cemetery. “Our veterans security is low on the list of priorities. Which is why I’m as upset as I am. They’re told no firearms at work. Source continued: “No cameras , no security and no weapons in the hands of law abiding citizens is an awful vulnerable place to be. Could make a great target for an active shooter.” Our source continued saying: “They’re going to use this to push more guns laws that obviously only effect law abiding citizens. It’s scary. It’s a failure of the state in every way.”
No name or photographs of the suspect have yet been released by the authorities. None of the above information has yet been released to the public until now.
No further information is being released by the state of Delaware at this time. We will continue to follow this story closely and provide updates as they are available.
