WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are looking into a shooting late last night that sent two people to the hospital.

Investigators say the first shot was fired at 10:52 p.m. Monday near 600 Emory Street. At about the same time, police received word that a second victim was on the way to New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

Officers found a man shot in the back on the corner of North 30th Street and Emory Street. The second victim arrived at the hospital with gunshot wounds to his right side.

Both victims are alert. The investigation continues.

    Here is what is wrong with the criminal element in this city. They can not shoot worth a crap. If they could shoot, one of them would end up dead. Therefore making this city one scumbag safer.

    My suggustion is for the Wilmington Police Department to take them out to the firing range and teach them how to do it.

    Of course, then there would be mammas crying about their poor babies who never harmed a butterfly.

    The really easiest way to solve this problem would be for yuppies who make too much money, to quit smoking crack or sucking the good stuff up their nostrials.

    Shootings in Wilmington are an embarrassment to each and every citizen, the police, and those involved. That two people would resort to shooting each other attest to their inability to resolve minor conflicts through more productive means, a failure of their families to instill the value of life and skills for solving conflict without violence.

    As a citizen of a free country I would expect more from those involved, and those in this neighborhood. You are truly free to go anywhere, become anything you choose. Yes you will have to work hard, and yes you may not become the 1% but you can have it better than a shootout in your front yard.

    The violence will not end until those who live in the neighborhood stop saying moronic things like, “Dats how we roll, yo!” and start saying, “I will not tolerate this. You are not going to embarrass and endanger my family, parents, and children with this violence! If you do this I will not protect you!”

    Wall it up and let all thugs and hoodrat hoochies kill themselves, then bulldoze the buildings and put in a water park. Then the area would be worth something.

    Please explain “the bigger picture” and tell us what we should do!

    Looks like the hood can’t get along with their own people! All else fail instead of killing others let them kill each other! Less people we have to feed in jail and less tax money!

    Less violence too, less people, less idiots. Rate crestwood is going won’t be much left of it.

    Are you serious? The rhetoric you have written sounds vaguely familiar- h now I have it Marie Antoinette “Let them eat cake.” Can you not see the bigger picture here?

    R-R-R-REALLY? Where? A shooting? Naaaah… I don’t believe it!

    There’s no crime problem in Wilmington, cause Taxo saffo said so. This story is a right wing plant designed to scare off hoteliers.
