WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The family of an 18-year-old man shot and killed last night in Wilmington says the shooting was gang related.
Investigators say Raequan Rouse was shot several times at N. 10th St. and Campbell St. They say the teen died shortly after he was brought to the hospital.
Stunned by his death and mourning his loss, Rouse’s family says the 18-year-old was part of the Bloods gang. They say the gunman was also a Blood, but they do not know exactly what led to the shooting.
Police say Rouse was shot multiple times sunday night and taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center by car. His family says it was a bullet to the neck that killed him.
“These boys around town are going crazy for no reason,” Rouse’s cousin Rakeem Jackson said. “But whoever did it, y’all should be ashamed of y’all’s self.”
A neighbor who did not want to go on camera says when she heard the commotion and peaked out the door she saw about six people in the street fighting.
Police have not given any information about a suspect.
