Shooting in Oxford Borough

11/10/2020 11:46AM ● By Steven Hoffman

At approximately 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 9, the Oxford Police Department reported a disturbance in the 700 block of Broad Street between two males. The incident ended with one of the men being shot in the neck. The 28-year-old male victim is receiving treatment at Christiana Hospital. His injuries do not appear to be life threatening and he is expected to be released.

 The homeowner, who is alleged to have shot the victim, was detained for questioning and released. The scene is secured and no further danger exists in the community. This was not a home invasion. And no police officers were involved in the dispute.

According to Police Chief Sam Iacono, a disturbance occurred in the driveway between a male residing in the home and a male who came to the home. Although, they are early in the investigation, it is thought that the dispute involves the shooting victim’s ex-girlfriend. The disturbance between the two males escalated and the homeowner came out and asked the male to leave. When he would not leave the homeowner allegedly shot him in the neck.

The investigation is ongoing and in the Chester County District Attorney’s hands now.
