Shooting witness: ‘He just went crazy, I think’

Monday, July 30th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Two members of one family are dead after a shooting this morning in New Hanover County. It happened around 10 a.m. on Normandy Drive near Monkey Junction.

“He shot her,” a woman who identified herself as the wife and mother of the two people killed told a 911 operator. “He came out with a gun and started shooting. He shot her and then he shot himself. He just went crazy, I think”

A neighbor found the elderly woman in the street covered with blood and called 911 turning the phone over to the witness.

“Why didn’t he shoot me?” the woman said. “I’ve lost my daughter.”

Investigators identified the two people killed as Eduard Nagel, 85, and his stepdaughter Valerie Kelly, 53.

Neighbor Tasha Green was at work in Leland when she heard about the shooting. Her thoughts immediately went to the safety of her own family.

“Within 15 to 20 minutes I was here,” Green said. “It was very scary knowing the kids were at home.”

Now she and her neighbors are left to pick up the pieces of their normally quiet community.

“We never expected anything like this to happen, especially in this type of neighborhood,” neighbor Dondrea Baker said. “We have very nice neighbors. Everybody speaks to one another most of the time. We never dreamed of anything like this happening… ever.”

The Sheriff’s Office says while the investigation continues, deputies are not actively seeking any suspects.
