Man shot several times during Wilmington home invasion

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man is in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds after a home invasion in Wilmington overnight.

Police say just after 1:30 a.m., a group of men forced people at gunpoint into their home in the 1900 block of Colwell Avenue.

Shots were fired at the home before witnesses say the suspects fled the scene in a blue Jeep Cherokee.

Minutes later, police say a Jeep matching the description witnesses gave them dropped a man off at the hospital. Police say a bullet grazed the man’s head, among several other gunshot wounds.

Police caught up with the Jeep as it was heading back towards the hospital, and took four suspects into custody.

They say charges are pending for the four people who were inside the Jeep, along with the man who was shot.
