Scott was shot in the chest, hand, and foot, and Dukes was fatally shot in the chest.
The Dover Police Department reported in 2017, that they arrested three people and were seeking a fourth in connection with the shooting death of Dequan Dukes on Tuesday night at Pine Grove Apartments. During the investigation, it was discovered that Brett Scott, Gregory Sellers, Lisa Wagaman, and Raymond Ward conspired to rob Dukes at Pine Grove Apartments. During the incident Dukes and Scott exchanged gunfire, resulting in Duke’s death and Scott being shot multiple times. Gregory Sellers transported Scott to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital for his injuries shortly after the incident. Further investigation led to the identification as Sellers, Wagaman, and Ward as participants in the robbery plan.
A Superior Court judge will sentence Scott to between 21 years and life in prison in September.
7-Eleven can thank heaven that Robert Caulk will get 55 years in the slammer after robbing the store three times in three weeks
WILMINGTON, DEL. – Robbing the same convenience store three times over the course of three weeks has led to a 55-year prison sentence for a Wilmington man.
