WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police say the victim and several witnesses are not talking about a shooting last night in Wilmington.

WPD officers responded to the area of 12th and Grace streets around 7 p.m. They found a 20-year-old man who had been shot in the left leg.

Officers found two .40 caliber shell casings in the road.

Police say the victim did not provide officers with any information about who shot him or why. WPD says despite numerous people standing around the immediate area, no one provided any additional information to investigators.

The victim was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Code of dishonor

"WPD says despite numerous people standing around the immediate area, no one provided any additional information to investigators."

So cool how so many in the hood follow that code of dishonor that says that no one talks to "the man". So cool how things never seem to get better there.

Someone, way back in ancient Greece, coined the phrase (not in English of course) "god helps those who help themselves". People all over the world have been repeating that thought for over two thousand years. Looks like the hood's got a slow learning curve. Two thousand years later and they still don't get it.

Pathetic. Horribly, stupidly pathetic.

Unusual

Shocking. Nobody done did see nufin.

Problems

How can anyone help these communities if no one wants to help themselves? I do not dare venture to these parts of town in fear of my own life. A friend of mine that lives downtown has been jumped 3 times in the past 5 months, all while walking home from downtown.

It only takes one person to fire a gun, but it takes an entire community to fight back to bring peace. I encourage anyone that has to be a part of this to stand up! We have all seen freedom writers. We are all human beings. No one is going to help you if you do not want to be helped.

"Nothing to see here"...

just another shooting in the "hood", "nobody saw nothing"...now move along.
