Shooting Leaves Teen in Serious Condition

BRIDGEVILLE, Del.- A shooting outside of a Sussex County nightclub left a teenager in serious condition on Sunday.
Delaware State Police said the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. outside of the D-Low Nightclub, located west of Bridgeville.

According to police, an 18-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were leaving a private party at the nightclub when a large group gathered outside of the club and became disorderly after being told by management that they were not allowed inside.  

Authorities said as the two were driving away from the nightclub, a male suspect came out of the crowd, produced a handgun and discharged several rounds into the air and into direction of the victim's car, striking the rear window.

Police said the victim, who was sitting in the driver's seat of the car, suffered a gunshot wound to the head. 

The passenger in the car was not injured and drove the teen to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.

Troopers identified 23-year-old Levonte Dockins of East New Market, Md., as the shooting suspect. He was located at a home in Laurel and taken into custody shortly after 12 p.m.
