Police investigating fifth shooting in Wilmington in three days
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after another shooting in Wilmington last night landed a man in the hospital.
Wilmington Police say around 7 p.m., ShotSpotter picked up several rounds in the 200 block of South 11th Street just before citizens called to report the shots fired there. Police shut down traffic in the area, but couldn’t find anything at the scene.
Just minutes later, police say officers got word from hospital workers that a man showed up there with a gunshot wound. Police say NHRMC employees told them the man drove himself to the hospital but they are not sure how many times he was shot or details on the extend of his injuries.
Wilmington Police say they are still investigating, but they do not have any suspect information yet. This is the fifth shooting reported in Wilmington since Saturday.
