DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police say three people were hurt in an exchange of gunfire during a home invasion this week.

WBOC-TV reported Tuesday that officers responded to an apartment complex a day earlier on a report of a home invasion in progress.

When they arrived, officers found two men lying on the ground between buildings suffering from gunshot wounds. An investigation revealed one of those men was a victim of the home invasion and the other was a suspect.

Hours later, a third person who police learned involved in the home invasion and subsequent exchange of gunfire showed up at a hospital with a gunshot wound.

None of the three involved was immediately identified. An investigation is ongoing.
