Police, US Marshals arrest man for attempted murder in Tuesday shooting


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man who was wanted for attempted murder is behind bars this morning after police say he shot another man, sending him to the hospital Tuesday afternoon. 

Wilmington Police say officers and US Marshals arrested Unyque Temoney, 19, last night for a slew of unrelated crimes, including the Tuesday shooting of 18-year-old Josua Gore at Chestnut and 12th streets.

On Tuesday, witnesses said they saw two men arguing when a third man drove up in a silver car, pulled out a gun and fired at a man before driving off. Witnesses say they heard four gun shots fire.

Temoney was wanted by police for first-degree attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and possession of a firearm by a felon. Those charges were among several other failure to appear charges for unrelated crimes.

Temoney is in the New Hanover County Jail under a $1,050,000 secured bond.

Temoney - seems like we have the heard that name several times in the last few years

Unyque - guess mom wanted to give him a different name


How do you catch this mutt? "Unyque" up on him!

What a dirtbag. When will the NAACP show up and do something about the causal issues instead of complaining about fairness and racial issues after the fact. How many black men have been in the news this week for the same thing? Thats what stands out to me. And this POS is smiling in his mug shot. Maybe the neighborhood leadership and local ministers need to do more, again.
