READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police are investigating an incident involving two juveniles and a gun near New Hanover High School this afternoon.

A New Hanover County Sheriff's deputy at the scene told WWAY investigators were looking for shell casings near the intersection of 13th and Dock streets near the school. No one was hurt.

Later Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer said it does not appear shots were fired. Brewer said WPD took over the investigation because the incident did not happen on school property.

Thanks for getting it right

Thank you for clarifying in your headline that the incident was not on NHHS campus as reported in the headlines by the Star News. Not sure why NHHS needed to be in your headline since it was not on campus and after school hours but at least you got it right.

I do not think anyone else considers this, but the NHHS band practices after school in the parking lot after school. I have never seen one school patrolman outside or anywhere while they practice. This is the second gun incident that has occurred while they were outside. Just concerned...

From Katie Janeene: "I do not think anyone else considers this, but the NHHS band practices after school in the parking lot after school."

So are you saying after school they are in the parking lot after school?
