DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Dover man has been charged with attempted murder after police say he shot his mother and her boyfriend.

Master Cpl. Gary E. Fournier says officers were alerted to shots fired Thursday afternoon in Dover’s Capitol Park neighborhood. When police arrived, they learned that two people were shot outside the home and had been taken to a hospital in a private vehicle.

Fournier says 22-year-old Emory O. Cannon had been fighting with his 41-year-old mother. Authorities say the mother’s 31-year-old boyfriend tried to intervene, and Cannon took out a handgun and began firing at the boyfriend, hitting him several times in the torso.

Fournier says the 31-year-old man was admitted to the hospital in serious condition. Cannon’s mother’s wound was considered non-life-threatening.
