WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover High School student-athlete has been charged with murder.

Wilmington Police arrested Tevin Sh’qur Quintell Hankins, 17, for first-degree murder after a shooting in the Creekwood community earlier this week.

Hankins was a junior at New Hanover High School and a starting defensive back on the Wildcat football team.

“I’m at a loss for words & absolutely devastated,” New Hanover football coach Kevin Motsinger said in a text message to WWAY’s John Rendleman.

A police spokeswoman confirms Hankins was charged in connection to the shooting in Creekwood Wednesday night that killed Jonathan Jones, Jr., 19, of Jacksonville. Police say Joseph Edwards Hanible, 24, of Wilmington was also injured in the shooting.

Police say a group of five or six men chased Jones and Hanible into a duplex and opened fire before driving off in two cars.

Police say the investigation into what happened continues.

Hankins, who made his first court appearance on the murder charge this morning, also has pending drug, trespassing and resisting an officer charges among others.

…and got attacked by the Whitey gangs!!! Those gangs are tough there. They even force pickup truck owners to hide their trucks in there garage and rarely enforce the back door slamming that goes on after the hubbys go to work!

You brought it out in the open and now we have to address it. We tried to tell you not to move in there with the Soda Crackahs and the Whitebreads….

Proving those two NIMRODS guilty of murder should be an easy task! Too many eye witnesses. My bet is they work a plea for 2nd degree murder and never go to trial.
