GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a woman was fatally shot when a man showed her his shotgun at a Georgetown home. Police say troopers responding to a report of a shooting Tuesday found a 54-year-old woman with a gunshot wound and she died on the scene. Police say the investigation determined that 26-year-old Jordan Walls of Georgetown was showing the woman his weapon at the home and a gunshot was fired. Troopers recovered a 20-gauge shotgun at the scene. Police say Walls was charged with manslaughter and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He’s being held on $120,000 cash bond. It’s unclear if Walls has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
