3 dead, 2 suspects in custody after gunmen open fire at soccer tournament in Delaware By The Associated Press

DOVER, Del. (AP) Three people are dead and two others are in custody after gunmen opened fire at a soccer tournament at a park in Wilmington, Del.

Police say the dead include the tournament organizer, 47-year-old Herman Curry, and that it appeared Curry was targeted by the gunmen.

Also killed was 16-year-old Alexander Kamara of Pike Creek.



Investigators said one of the suspects, 43-year-old Sheldon Olge, was fatally shot by someone in the crowd after he and two accomplices opened fire Sunday afternoon before fleeing in a car.

Authorities have charged two Delaware men, 34-year-old Otis Phillips and 22-year-old Jeffrey Phillips, with two counts each of first-degree murder and other crimes. At the time of the shootings, Otis Phillips was the subject of an outstanding murder warrant for a 2008 shooting.
