WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say two men were robbed at gunpoint while walking home on Darlington Ave. early this morning.

Police say the men were heading home from Courts & Sports around 1:30 a.m., when one of them pulled out some money to see if they had enough for a cab.

One of the suspects reportedly fired a shot in the air. One of the victims ran off toward Covil Ave., while the other with the money froze. He said the men took his money and ran off.
