Police say the teen shooting victim was taken to New Hanover Regional. No word on his name or condition.

Police say Adams has an extensive criminal record.

    “Extensive criminal record”…….lock him up one more time and throw the freakin’ key away. He need not ever see the light of day again!

  • Guest2020 says:

    If he has “an extensive criminal record” then it is in another state. His past convictions in North Carolina don’t amount to “an extensive criminal record”.

    Drug deal gone bad

  • friend of family says:

    The young boy was not in a gang and it was not a drug deal gone wrong…If that was the case the news report would have said that

  • Wilmington Truth Teller says:

    A 30 year old man, dealing with a 15 year old teenager? Sounds to me like we might need to look into the history of this “young boy”. If this was just a innocent teenager, then the grown man is certainly an animal.

    But, if this “young boy” was a dope, dealing, gangster, thug, who packs up on people. Then he was have just, more then likely, a ” crack-head”, maybe defending himself.

    The pictures of a innocent, 13 year old, Trayvon Martin, shown by CNN, are the total opposite, of the hate-filled, violent racist thug, we saw, in his web page. Which the media has blacked out.
