DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police have arrested a Milford man in the weekend killing of a Middletown man.

Authorities say 22-year-old Rondree Campbell was arrested Wednesday after reporting to probation and parole officials.

Campbell is charged with first-degree murder and other crimes in the death of 36-year-old Sylvester Williams, Dover’s record seventh homicide victim of the year.

Authorities say Campbell admitted firing a gun several times Sunday night in the area of South New Street. One of the rounds struck Williams, who was in the area to help a family member move.

Authorities believe Williams was not the intended target, and that Campbell was seeking retaliation after a physical confrontation prior to the shooting in which Williams was not involved.

It was not immediately known whether Campbell has an attorney.
