Police were investigating a shooting in on Turtle Station Bridge.
The Delaware City County voted to update laws that deal with children playing in the street, according to ThisWeek News.
The newspaper said the city council voted to repeal an ordinance that read, "No person shall throw, pitch, bowl, knock with a bat, stick, board or any other substance, or in any manner propel in, on or over any public street, sidewalk, alley, square or space within the city, any ball, stone or solid substance."
Other laws were tweaked to cover individuals playing in the streets, as well as walking in the street.
Violating the new ordinance would be a minor misdemeanor on the first offense, the paper reported.
Police Chief Bruce Pijanowski said no tickets had been written under the former ordinance.
He added that his officers "generally try to be reasonable" when approaching children playing in the street.
