Delaware trooper fatally shot outside convenience store

A Delaware state trooper, whose Facebook page identified him as being from Bowie, was shot and killed yesterday as he approached a suspicious vehicle outside a Wawa convenience store in Bear, Delaware. The 32-year-old Ballard was assigned to Troop 2, Glasgow, and had been on the force for 8.5 years.

McQueen says Sealy shot Cpl. Checks can be made out to the DSTA - Stephen Ballard Memorial Fund and mailed to PO Box 168, Cheswold, DE 19936.

Delaware State Police say proceeds donated to the memorial fund will be donated to Cpl. Stephen J. Ballard was mortally wounded by gunfire in the parking lot of a Bear, Delaware, Wawa, according to philly.com. One person was taken into custody at the scene, while another is holed up in a house about 15 miles south in Middletown. The Odessa Fire Company had opened its facility to temporarily house the residents in the area who had been evacuated. Officers were attempting to make contact with the suspect and were continuing to attempt to persuade him to surrender, state police said. "Ballard, his wife, his daughter, his family, a heart that aches for the Delaware State Police who served with him". He also wouldn't say whether Ballard might have been targeted, either individually or as a police officer.

State police are continuing to monitor the situation where a shooting suspect has barricaded himself inside a Middletown home.

After shooting the officer, Sealy called relatives and told them what he'd done, McQueen said, and they reported that to police.

Police returned fire, and Sealy was pronounced dead some 12 minutes later.

Travers continues that he then saw a man exit the vehicle and shoot the fallen officer several more times before running away.

Witnesses said that customers and employees at the Wawa location performed CPR on the officer until rescue workers arrived.

Trump, top Russia envoy to meet at White House
But Lavrov said the world should "learn from our mistakes", and that ousting and replacing dictators doesn't work. Still, Tillerson's meeting provided a blueprint for how the former Cold War foes might go about improving ties.

Delaware Governor John Carney ordered both US and state flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of Ballard, whose body was taken to state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

Burgon Sealy Jr., of Middletown, Delaware, was killed by police Thursday morning when he exited the home in which he'd been barricaded overnight and "engaged police". The other man was arrested at the scene.

"This situation is a heartbreaking reminder of the risks our police and first responders face when they take an oath to keep our communities safe", said Sen. Police say that's when Sealy fired at Ballard with a handgun he had in his waistband.

"This investigation is related to the incident in which a trooper was shot outside a Newark area convenience store".
