Schools up and down Delmarva joined the national walkout that marked the one month anniversary of the Florida high school shooting that left 17 dead.

Students at Wicomico High School walked out at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes that reflected the number of those killed at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.

A Senior Elisa Wilson told WBOC that everyone at the school took the demonstration seriously.

Others suggested that the walkout was not really solving the problem.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware police who found a body in a lake earlier this week say there are no obvious signs of foul play at this time.

A Dover police release says the body found in Silver Lake on Tuesday has been identified as Stefphone Powell, who had been reported missing on Feb. 18.

It says the department doesn't know what killed Powell yet, but is waiting on toxicology results from the Office of the Medical Examiner.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Senate is poised to give final approval to a bill banning devices that increase the rate of fire of semi-automatic rifles.

The bill, released by a Senate committee Wednesday, defines bump stocks as "destructive weapons" and makes it a felony to have one. The bill has passed the House and is scheduled for a Senate vote Thursday.

The Senate also will vote Thursday on a bill strengthening the penalty for straw purchases, in which a person buys a gun to sell or give to someone prohibited from having one.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland National Guard officials have acknowledged that the guard can't account for hundreds of rounds of ammunition that, at least on paper, were distributed during unrest in Baltimore.

Guard spokesman Col. Charles Kohler tells The Baltimore Sun that they aren't sure whether the 1,500 missing M4 rounds actually disappeared. He says it may just be an "accounting error" on their books. Kohler says the guard "did not find anybody liable" for a "broken chain of custody" over the ammunition.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A measure to increase standard tax deductions has passed the Maryland Senate as part of the state's response to the federal tax overhaul.

The unanimous vote Wednesday sends the bill to the House.

The measure increases the standard tax deduction by $500 for individuals and $1,000 for couples for three years. The deduction will go from $2,000 to $2,500 for individuals and $4,000 to $5,000 for joint filers.

BALTIMORE (AP) - A spokesman for a super PAC created to oppose Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby in the upcoming election says it has fizzled and is shutting down.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Bmore Safe Now political action committee was formed last summer and posted an 18-second ad online targeting Mosby.

However, the group last week filed its fundraising report showing it had raised just $5,235.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware could be one of the first states to adopt mobile driver's licenses.

The Delaware Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the state's Division of Motor Vehicles has launched a six-month pilot of the digital license.

Division of Motor Vehicles Director Scott Vien says the technology could enhance customer privacy and safety. The pilot will test age verification that protects other personal information, law enforcement use, business acceptance, ease and secure access.
