Standoff In Delaware Comes To An End: Suspected Cop Killer Shot By Police

While we wish we could report on nothing but the fun stuff, one of The First State’s towns has been struck by an unexpected tragedy. Wednesday afternoon a Delaware State Police Officer responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of a local Wawa off of Pulaski Highway. After arriving to the Wawa, suspected killer 26-year old Burgon Sealy Junior fatally shot 32-year old Stephen J. Ballard of the Delaware police force. As if the situation wasn’t heartbreaking enough, the suspect managed to flee to his family home on St. Michael Drive in Middletown where he barricaded himself for hours and fired at police numerous times.

As of around 9 am this morning, it all came to and end when the suspect was shot and killed after exiting his house and attempting to engage police. To find out all that we know about the situation, continue reading below.

After a long and tiring 24 hours, the situation has come to an end after the 26-year old suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. We thank all of the law enforcement that worked hard to keep this troublesome matter contained and as safe as possible for those in the community.
