WILMINGTON, NC, (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are investigating a shooting in the 600 block of Mcrae Street Wednesday night.

Police say a 19-year-old was shot in the left ankle. Now, they are searching for a black man wearing a black hoodie and driving a black jeep. Police also say they found five shell casings at the scene and the victim was taken to a hospital.
