One of the two suspects linked to a deadly home invasion in Dover over the weekend is now in custody, while the second man remains on the loose.
Matthew Harrington turned himself in to Buckingham Township Police in Pennsylvania Sunday night. The 23-year-old is awaiting extradition back to Delaware and is currently behind bars at the Bucks County Correctional Facility.
The Delaware State Police homicide unit is still searching for Saleem Shabazz, 21, of Philadelphia. Shabazz is considered armed and dangerous. Police said he might be in a dark-colored, four-door SUV.
Both face murder and assault charges, among others.
Police were called to the 1400 block of John Clark Road in the Rodney Village subdivision at 1:38 a.m. on Saturday morning where three people were shot, two of them fatally. Troopers identified the two deceased victims as Haley Henwood, 18, and her father, Clifton Leager, 52.
Leager’s adult son was also in the home when he heard the struggle. When he jumped in, police said, Leager’s son was shot. He was treated and released from an area hospital.
Troopers still do not have a motive and are unsure of Henwood’s involvement in the incident at this time.
