A married couple from Maryland ages 85 and 86, visiting the grave of their son who died of cerebral palsy, were victims of a deadly shooting at a veterans cemetery in Delaware mid Friday. The couple would have celebrated their 62nd anniversary this year.
The deceased suspect, Sheldon Francis, aged 29, arrived at the cemetery in his Honda early Friday morning before shooting both of the victims, fleeing into a nearby wooded area and engaging in a shootout with police.
We got in contact with a source on location with first hand accounts of the incident. Our source, as well as the names of the victims have been redacted out of respect to family members of the deceased.
“What they’re reporting is not factual”
“The shooter was in his car waiting before Mr And Mrs [redacted] got there. He was waiting” our source recalled. Dressed in all black with a black face mask, carrying a rifle with a scope, the suspect “approached Mr and Mrs [redacted], shot Mrs [redacted] first, then Mr [redacted], then immediately ran to the woods.” before engaging in a shootout with police officers. The suspect was soon later found deceased with gunshot wounds.
Our research team searched the internet for Sheldon Francis’ social media presence but it has all been completely erased. Multiple publications did however report that Sheldon Francis had social media posts suggesting “he was particularly troubled by the killing of Ahmaud Arbery”. These claims, if accurate, propose a motive of racial animosity and revenge, fueled by widely circulated, irresponsible reporting surrounding the Ahmed Arbery incident in Georgia. “authorities are now exploring whether the cemetery shooting may have been racially motivated.”
Our source close to the situation told us: “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.”
Another witness on the scene “noticed the black Honda sitting there, Shooter inside. When he got back, the victims had pulled up behind the black Honda and mr was helping Mrs out of the car and down the path.”
“So he really did hunt them. They were the only 2 visitors”. “That columbarium is the closest structure to the woods. And look closely at the whole set up. His car was 1/4 of the distance to him than the woods. Why not just leave? He wasn’t trying to get away. He knew what he was doing.”
“The police were saying “Hes trying to take our drone out!” And then my [redacted] had to hang up on me.”
“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 “had him surrounded in the woods. That they could see him on the drone but couldn’t get eyes on him and asked if there were ditches back there. And I used to explore those woods as a kid. There’s ditches, a pond, a boat.”
International coverage of the questionable circumstances surrounding an incident in Georgia involving a suspected burglar who had allegedly trespassed onto private property before engaging in a physical altercation with locals have once again fueled racial tension across an American nation seemingly incapable of moving past the racial divide.
