WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Multiple gunshots were fired from a vehicle near the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday night, the U.S. Secret Service said Sunday. The vice president and his wife were not at home at the time of the shooting, authorities said.

The Wilmington home is several hundred yards from the main road where the shots rang out, and authorities were searching outside the Biden residence and nearby homes to determine whether any rounds hit anything. Police in New Castle County, Delaware, said there were no reports of any injuries related to the shooting.

Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said the shots were fired at about 8:25 p.m. on a public road outside the home's secure perimeter.

Secret Service personnel heard the shots, saw the vehicle drive past the home at a high rate of speed and flee the scene.

The Secret Service said about 30 minutes later, an individual in a vehicle tried to pass a county police officer at a checkpoint set up after the shooting near the Biden home. That person was arrested for resisting arrest and was scheduled to be questioned regarding the shooting incident. County Police Sgt. Jacob Andrews said it appears the man was not involved in the shooting.

Young Cho, who lives two houses up from the Bidens, said Sunday that he heard four gunshots just before 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening.

ROSELAWN (FOX19) - Police have confirmed that a stabbing has left a 60-year-old wheelchair-bound woman dead in Roselawn.

District Four police officers say they were dispatched to the 1800 block of Losantville Avenue at around 10:45 a.m. for a stabbing.

Officials say upon arriving officers located Patricia Hummons deceased near a sidewalk.

According to authorities, an investigation revealed 21-year-old Andrew Kimbrough attacked Hummons with a knife causing her death.

"It's got me really shaken up,” said Hillcrest Elderly Apartments resident Deborah Jones.

For Jones, and those living here at the Roselawn apartment complex where Hummons lived, life will never be the same without the friend they describe as go-lucky, happy and loving life.

"Pat used to go up there and get her cigarettes and come back. This time, she went up there and she didn't make it,” said resident Anthony Byrd.

Hummons, 60, would make that short trip a part of her routine, her friends say.

"She maybe had a couple bucks on her. You're going to try to rob her for a couple dollars? That's just not right,” said Jones.
