Authorities have arrested the son of a man killed in a home invasion.
Delaware State Police say in a press release that police arrested 21-year-old Jacob Leager on Thursday on manslaughter charges after he chased the home intruders and fatally shot a woman.
Police say Leager and his father, Clifton Leager, were shot by suspects who invaded their Dover home in October. Clifton Leager died as a result.
Officials say Jacob Leager then picked up a handgun that was dropped by the intruders — whom police identified as Saleem Shabazz and Matthew Harrington — and chased after them to the area where they had parked their car. He fired a shot into the vehicle, killing a woman named Haley Henwood, who later died from her injuries.
Leager was booked at Sussex Correctional Institution. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
