Elderly Delaware Man Drives Off Four Attackers With Single Shot

The call came to Delaware State Police headquarters just before 3 a.m. Wednesday, reporting a home invasion in Camden involving four men. When investigators arrived, they discovered an elderly man who had been in a struggle with one of the four suspects who had forced their way into his home. However, the homeowner had managed to grab his gun and fire a single shot—which lodged in the floor, but managed to scare off the intruders.

A short time later, troopers stopped a suspicious vehicle with a quartet of men inside, and found evidence connecting them to the attack. The four men were identified as Tyson B. Beckett, 26; Anthony Long, 18; Brandon D. Satchell, 25; and 29-year-old Joshua T. Walker. All were arrested on a variety of charges, from first-degree assault to possession of a firearm during a felony.

The elderly victim was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
