A few hours later, four other people became victims of another shooting on 27th Street in the same Delaware city.

A 34-year-old man is in critical condition. The three other victims are reportedly in stable condition: a 25-year-old man, 41-year-old man and 43-year-old woman.

The shootings are under investigation.
