WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say one man is dead and another hurt after a shooting in the Creekwood community Wednesday night. The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Wednesday at 1005 North 30th Street.

According to police at the scene of the shooting, two black males were chased into a duplex by a group of five or six men. They ran up to the second floor, where the two victims were shot. There were people uninvolved in the incident on the first floor.

Police say the man that died was 19-year-old Jonathan Jones Jr of Jacksonville. The other man, 24-year-old Joseph Edwards Hanible of Wilmington, was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, but on the way, the ambulance carrying him was hit by another car at the intersection of Market and 16th Streets. Another ambulance took Hanible the rest of the way to the hospital.

A 9-1-1 caller from the incident was certainly surprised when the men ran into her home.

“I don’t know people just ran into my house and shot them…(crying)…they ran into my house, ran up stairs and shot them.”

Police say the group of gunmen ran out of the home and got into a white Honda with tinted windows and a blue and white box-style Chevrolet.

Police are still looking for the shooters.

What language is that? It looks to be loosely based on English but I’m not completely sure. The upper class people are drug tested. When we get jobs drug tests are done. Some jobs require random drug tests as well. So if you had ever had a job with more responsibility than taking fries out of hot grease you would know that. And if there are some taking drugs but not living off tax money, so be it. While you are making your “living” off taxes that I pay when I work to earn a living, you should be tested.

There have been studies throughout the country that Afican American males are more likely to die from violent acts than any other race. I grew up in Oho were there were shooting deaths each day-no races bur African American were involved.

Have some respect. He ran into a home because he was being chased by a group of armed boys. Anyone would have done the same had their life been on the line. And arguing over petty “incorrect phrases” and terminology is very ignorant. This is not the place for ignorance. One CHILD is dead, another injured, and the rest are looking to spend their lives locked up. Yes, these boys should not have been in the situation they were in, but we can not change the past. We need to look at the bigger picture here. Our children are out here dying because they have access to deadly weapons. Stop the violence. Make a difference so that you may change and save a life. I just pray that the survivors find their faith and start believing in a God because they are in for an eternity of Hell if they do not.
