WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — An 18-year-old who was shot several times in Wilmington Sunday night has died in the hospital, according to a spokeswoman with Wilmington Police.

Police say Raequan Dupree Rouse died at New Hanover Regional Medical Center a short time after being taken there for injuries following a shooting in the 600 block of N. 10th Street.

Around 6:30 p.m., officers responded to that area after Shotspotter picked up gunfire there and dispatchers got numerous calls from people who heard shots fired.

When police got to the scene, they say they found several shell casings and a trail of blood at the corner of N. 10th and Campbell streets. A short time later, officers were told the victim in that shooting showed up to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police say they are still investigating the crime, but that they have no information on a suspect at this time.
