A Delaware man celebrating his birthday witnessed a gunman kill his daughter and co-worker outside his home over the weekend.

Doris Dorsey, a 15-year-old recent graduate from Stanton Middle School, was inside a vehicle in the driveway speaking to her father outside their home on the unit block of Lloyd Street in Belvedere Sunday shortly before 1:30 a.m. Vincent DiMenco, 35, a friend and co-worker of the girl’s father, was also sitting in the front yard. Police say Dorsey’s father was celebrating his birthday at the time.

As the three were speaking, an unidentified gunman walked up to the home and opened fire. Both Dorsey and DiMenco were struck in the shooting. The girl’s father was not injured. The gunman then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Both Dorsey and DiMenco were pronounced dead by responding medics.
