Delaware Man Chases Dad With Shotgun: Cops

A Delaware man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly chasing his father with a shotgun.

Police say that shortly after 7 a.m., Shannon Marshall, 34, visited his 58-year-old father’s home in Middletown and asked him for money.

When his father refused to give him any, Marshall allegedly took out a single barrel shotgun and chased him around the house, threatening to kill him.

Police say that Marshall even pulled the trigger at one point but the gun did not fire.

Marshall’s father then ran to a neighbor’s home where he called 911. Police say that Marshall then drove away in his Chevrolet pickup truck. His father was not injured during the incident.

Police later arrived at Marshall’s house in Frederica, DE where they spotted his truck. Investigators say that a Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team approached the home and told Marshall to surrender. Police say that Marshall didn’t respond however.

After a nearly two hour standoff, police say that the response team and a state police K-9 team entered Marshall’s home and took him into custody.

Marshall was arrested and charged with 1st degree reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, possession of a deadly weapon and other related offenses.

His arraignment information is unavailable at this time.
