UPDATE: Arrests Made In Officer-Targeted Shootings

SALISBURY, Md. - Wicomico County officials say they have made arrests in possible assassination attempts on law enforcement across Delmarva. They aren't releasing much information at this time, but last week they told WMDT there were three shooting incidents at the private homes of officers.

Authorities say the incidents involved a Wicomico County Police officer, a Worcester County Police officer and a Delaware State Trooper.

Those shootings reportedly happened between 10PM and 4AM at the private homes of the officers.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said, "We do believe that they were targeted because of their jobs and the profession they chose, which is to serve our Country and to serve our Citizens."

Luckily no injuries were reported. Authorities did say last week they believe the cases are connected.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Department has planned a press conference for Friday January 4, 2013 to release more information.
