DOJ Secures Conviction in Violent Gun Case

by Submitted News
A Wilmington man has been convicted of multiple felonies, including Muder 1st Degree, for the 2021 killing of Tyaire Anderson.


On  June 10, Tyrell Reid, 33, was convicted in New Castle County Superior Court of Murder 1st Degree, Assault First Degree, Attempted Assault 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, and three counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. This conviction follows an investigation into a broad daylight shooting that claimed the life of Tyaire Anderson and wounded two bystanders under the age of 13 in 2021. 
“This is yet another tragic example of the devastation wrought on our communities by senseless gun violence,” said Attorney General Kathy Jennings. “We will not sit idly by when our neighbors and children are caught in the crossfire. Thanks to the hard work of our team and the Wilmington Police Department, this criminal has been brought to justice; but our work is far from over. Our hearts remain with the victims and their families.” 
“This guilty verdict reflects the hard work of our investigators, and our collaboration with prosecutors to hold this violent offender accountable,” said Chief Wilfredo Campos. “I am proud of our detectives, who work tirelessly to deliver justice on behalf of crime victims and their families.” 
On September 25, 2021, Tyrell Reid approached Tyaire Anderson on the 400 block of North Monroe Street in Wilmington and proceeded to shoot him multiple times at point-blank range. Anderson was transported to Christiana Hospital where he later died of his wounds. Two minors were also shot and sustained non-fatal injuries.
