Greenwood– The Delaware State Police are currently investigating a shooting incident and are seeking the public’s assistance in attempting to locate 19-year-old EDWARD PALMER of Felton, DE, who is wanted in connection.

The incident occurred on June 20, 2020 at approximately 8:36 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 10000 block of Memory Road, Greenwood, in reference to a shooting.  Upon arrival, Troopers learned that Edward Palmer had responded to this residence in an attempt to locate his ex-girlfriend who was not home at the time.  Palmer was heard outside the residence threatening to shoot his ex-girlfriend’s dog and assault her father who was inside the residence.

Palmer proceeded to fire three rounds into the residence, striking his ex-girlfriend’s 42-year-old father who was in his bedroom.  The victim sustained two non-life threatening gunshot wounds to his upper extremities and was transported to a local area hospital for treatment.

A computer inquiry revealed that Palmer has a no contact order with this ex-girlfriend.  Troopers have been unable to locate Palmer who currently has an active warrant out of Troop 4 for the following:

  • Assault First Degree Conduct Created Risk of Death Caused Serious Injury (Felony)
