Police searching for shooter after store, several cars struck by bullets

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are searching for a suspect who they say fired shots into a Wilmington business and several vehicles last night, just hours after a man was shot a few blocks away.

Police say it happened at the intersection of 14th and Dawson streets around 7 p.m., five hours after a shooting at 15th and Wooster streets sent a man to the hospital.

They say when officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert in the area, they found that the store on the corner, Sam’s Superette, was struck by two rounds. Police also found several cars that had also been hit by bullets.

Police say witnesses told them that a person on foot may have been the target of the gunfire. Witnesses also told them they think the suspect’s vehicle is a burgundy SUV, possibly a Jeep.
