Man Who Went on Stabbing Spree in Delaware Home is Shot and Killed by One of His Victims

A man has been shot and killed after stabbing several people with a knife before one of his victims was able to shoot him with a shotgun.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:29 a.m. on Wednesday May 26, in Hartly, Delaware — about 10 miles west of Dover — when Delaware State Police were dispatched to a residence located in the 700 block of Proctors Purchase Road to reports of a person being shot and multiple people suffering from stab wounds, according to the Delaware State Police.

“Upon arrival, troopers secured the scene and escorted Emergency Medical Services (EMS) into the home where they located numerous people with injuries,” Delaware State Police said in a press release regarding the incident.

Authorities say that several individuals were in the home watching TV and playing games throughout the night when one of the men became enraged and reportedly began attacking the other men in the house with a knife. It is unclear what sparked the man to begin his stabbing spree.
