Aug. 03, 2018
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — Delaware police say a woman and her boyfriend tried to run over the woman's teen brother before struggling over a gun.
The Wilmington News Journal reported Friday that 21-year-olds Delilah Boyer and Marvin Burton have been arrested on charges including assault. Delaware State Police say Burton fought with Boyer's 19-year-old brother and then got into a car with Boyer, who proceeded to try and run her brother down.
Authorities say Boyer missed the teen and crashed the car, from which Burton then pulled out a gun. They say Burton and the brother struggled over the weapon, which went off, while Boyer fought her mother.
No one was wounded in the shooting. The teen and mother suffered minor injuries. It's unclear if Boyer and Burton have lawyers.
