D'Andre Green

On December 28, 2013, 16-year-old D’Andre Green was attending a birthday party at the Brookside Community Center in Newark, Delaware. As people were leaving the event and D’Andre was waiting outside for his father to pick him up from the party, a fight broke out in the front parking lot of the Center. D’Andre, who was not involved in the fight, attempted to run away when shots were fired. However, D’Andre was caught in the crossfire, shot several times, and later died from his injuries.

According to New Castle County Police, officers were called to the community center around 11:45 p.m. for the report of a large crowd and disturbance.

The FBI has joined the search for the killer who gunned down a teenage boy, an innocent bystander who was leaving a party in Newark, Delaware.

The agency added another $10,000 to a reward fund, bringing the total to $30,000.

Killed – Roy D. Rhodes (Milford, DE)


MILFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say Roy D. Rhodes has died from injuries sustained Saturday in an officer-involved shooting in Milford.

Rhodes, 58, of Milford, had been listed in critical condition at Milford Memorial Hospital since the shooting. He was pronounced dead Monday evening.

DSP on Monday also identified the officer involved as Milford Police Sgt. Robert Young, 39, an 18-year veteran.

Young was placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of the DSP investigation into the incident.

The DSP Homicide Unit is investigating at the request of the Milford Police Department.

DSP spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack said Rhodes was driving a Lincoln Town Car at around 4 p.m. Saturday on Milford-Harrington Highway when he nearly caused a crash with another car. The other car avoided a collision, and Rhodes crashed through some bushes and stopped in a driveway.

Shavack said the other driver got out to check on Rhodes, who was holding a knife to his own throat. The driver took the knife from Rhodes, who then allegedly pulled out a handgun. That is when Sgt. Young arrived on the scene.

Shavack said Young repeatedly ordered Rhodes to put down the gun, but he refused. Young then shot Rhodes three times in the upper body and lower extremity, according to Shavack. Both the knife and the handgun were recovered at the scene.
