WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington police are investigating after reports of shots fired early Saturday morning near the 900 block of North 30th Street in the Creekwood community.
Lieutenant Green with the Wilmington PD says officers received the call around 1 A.M. but when they arrived, they found no victim, just a crowd of people, and five shell casings. Police say no one would tell them what happened.
We spoke with one witness, Donald Harper, who says the whole thing was caused by a fight between two women at a party.
“Everybody start running around, and gathering around the crowd, and nobody wants to break it up, so the only way to disperse it, one of the fellows shot up in the air, and that broke it up,” Harper said.
Harper says the man only shot twice into the air, so he believes the rest of the shell casings are from a different incident.
