DOVER — Members of the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force conducting an investigation in Dover worked with local police to arrest one man at Cedar Cove Apartments Thursday morning.
Lt. Brant Dolleman of the Dover Police Department said the federal task force works on cases involving violent crime and drugs.
“This is an ongoing Safe Streets operation,” Dolleman said. “We’re very limited in what we can say.”
Police went to Regent Drive at 7:45 a.m. on Thursday. Multiple people were taken into custody but were released during the incident.
Dolleman said no shots were fired and nobody was injured. Flashbang grenades were used.
The arrest took place across the street from Hampshire Circle, which is where three shots were fired early Monday morning near the Dover Housing Authority maintenance garage.
That incident started as a confrontation between two groups of people. Nobody was injured in the shooting.
Dolleman could not say if the FBI arrest was related to Monday’s shooting. He did say that local police have made no arrests related to that incident.
Dover police have identified most of the people involved in the shooting on Monday.
A public affairs official at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Concord said they do not confirm or deny any arrests made in federal investigations.
The Safe Streets Task Force is made up of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies who collaboratively work together to address crime involving drugs, guns and gangs.
There are 160 of these task forces nationwide, according to the FBI’s website.
If people notice unusual or suspicious activity, they are asked to call police at 742-4646.
