In August, 21-year-old Terrence Fletcher was suspected of carrying a loaded gun in Dover. During a foot chase, Fletcher, who is black, was shot in the thigh by a Dover police officer. Following the incident, he admitted to carrying a .38-caliber five-shot revolver.
He faced two charges of carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited. The News-Journal reported that the second was dropped after he agreed to plead guilty for the first charge on December 16.
