A 41-year-old pediatrician is being held on $2 million bail after she allegedly fired several shots at her former partner, striking her three times and narrowly missing their 11-year-old son.
Lauren Patricia Daly, a pediatrician at A.I. du Pont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., is charged with attempted homicide and related offenses in connection with the Memorial Day shooting that occurred about 6:49 p.m. in the driveway of her home in the 200 block of North Middletown Road, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Daly reportedly was upset at not being able to speak with her son and allegedly responded by firing several rounds through the windshield of the victim’s black Volvo, striking the 49-year-old woman in the face and torso. The boy was not physically harmed.
According to the affidavit of probable cause written by Trooper John O’Donnell, Daly and the victim had been in a relationship that ended several years ago.
Daly was held overnight then arraigned Tuesday morning by Magisterial District Judge Walter Strohl on charges including attempted homicide, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, two counts, endangering the welfare of a child and possessing instruments of crime. Daly did not post the $2 million bail and was remanded to Delaware County prison.
