WILMINGTON, Del. - August 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- A man from Philadelphia, suspected of firing a gun inside a Wilmington home, has surrendered to police.
Officials say 33-year-old Hassan Muhammad was allowed into the home in the 2900 block of Mendenhall Court around 4:00 Sunday morning.
The man who lives there says that's when Muhammad pulled out a gun and started making threats.
The victim ran from the home and called police.
When officers arrived, they heard repeated gunshots being fired inside.
