Two overnight shootings under investigation

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It looks like last night’s winter storm was not enough to cool crime in New Hanover County.

New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting around midnight at 104 Fawn St. in Castle Hayne. NHSO spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer said there was one victim with a superficial wound. The man was transported to a hospital for care, but his injuries are not considered life threatening. Investigators say the victim was walking to his car and bullets flew from a dark-colored. There have been no arrests.

Around 1:30 a.m. Wilmington Police responded to a shooting at 1101 N. 30th St. WPD says five people said they were sleeping when someone fired into their home and car. Investigators found six shell casings in front of the house. An 18-year-old woman sleeping on the living room couch was injured either by glass fragments or a bullet grazing her left ear. A witness reported seeing a dark-colored four-door SUV as the shooter’s vehicle. It then took off south on N 30th. St.

Investigators do not know if the two shootings are related.
