Delaware State Police have arrested two men in connection with the shooting of a Delaware law enforcement officer's house.

Orrin Joudrey, 20, of Delmar, Maryland, and David Watson, 24, of Laurel, Delaware are charged with attempted murder, reckless endangering, and other offenses.

Police say the pair drove around Maryland and western Sussex County in Delaware firing numerous rounds of shotgun and rifle ammunition at law enforcement officer's houses, targeting homes with marked police cars in the driveways.

It happened in the wee hours of the morning on December 27th.

The homes included that of a Dewey Beach Police officer on Laurel Road in Laurel, Delaware. No one at the officer's residence was injured when the shots were fired at 3:51a.m.

Police arrested Joudrey during a traffic stop early Wednesday. Officers say they found a shotgun and ammunition in the trunk and have charged Joudrey with drunk driving in addition to the other offenses.

Watson, with whom Joudrey was staying in Laurel, was arrested Wednesday afternoon at his home on County Seat Highway.

Police say they found a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle and ammunition at the residence. Watson is on probation for a previous conviction and has been charged with violating the terms of his probation in addition to the other offenses.

Both men are behind bars. Bail has been set at over $300,000 for each.
