WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say a man was shot several times through a car window Friday night.

According to police, just after 9 p.m., Shot Spotter picked up shots fired in the 200 block of N. 11th Street.

When officers got to the scene, they found a man who had been shot in the passenger seat of a car.

They say the victim, Tony Russell, was shot through the front, passenger window of the car by another man.

Police say although Russell was not cooperative with officers, he was able to give a description of the suspect. He told police his shooter is a 5’8″ black male, with a husky build, wearing black clothes and a hat.

Police say Russell told them the suspect took off on Chestnut Street toward a small, black, 4-door car, believed to be a Grand Marquis.

It’s smaller than one of those giant dump trucks you see on National Geographic you know?
Maybe it was an Ok Marquis…but not Grand.
Detailed news at its best :-)

still under a “cease fire” :) I guess Mr. 5′ 8″ husky male with a hat and wearing black clothes didn’t get the memo.

Imagine…Tony not wanting to cooperate.

Since when is a Grand Marquis considered a “small” car?

The Cease Fire thing (I believe) was referring to X Police Chief Cease starting a fire inside his Bar-B-Q grill way back when…not violence control.
Has had about as much effect.

Add to that the gun buy back and violence should be down (sarcasm). Maybe if you have your head buried in the sand.

If the gun buy back had been held on Friday instead of Sat. this would never would have happened.

Victim does not want to cooperate, fine. Police should leave, close case for no prosecution on victim’s part and maybe next time they will shoot and kill each other and again, case closed!

If only they had a few more dollars at the gun buyback, this man may not have been shot. Too bad the shooter was out of town the Sunday sermon told of the “cease fire”.

After the gun buy-back program.

If a church would have bought his gun this never would have happened. We need gun “buybacks” every day of the week!

Maybe Cease and Evangelouse can get together and compare notes as how to completely kill morale and rule with incompetence.
