UPDATE: Man shot in leg during dispute in Houston Moore complex identified


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police are still investigating after they say a shooting in the Houston Moore complex sent one man to the hospital Saturday afternoon.

Wilmington Police say officers responded to the 1500 block of S. 15th Street around 4:15 p.m. when they say ShotSpotter alerted them of shots fired there. When police got to the scene, they say they found a man on the ground with at least one gunshot wound to the leg.

Officers say the wounded man, Lawrence Boyle, told them several shots were fired between two people who had gotten into an argument. Police say Boyle, who claimed to have spotted the two fighting, was shot during the dispute.

Police found several shell casings in the area before Boyle was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for his gunshot wound. There's no word yet on suspects in the shooting, and WPD says they are working to get more information from Boyle at this time.

So glad they spent all that

So glad they spent all that money to bury the power lines at Houston Moore. It has really paid off. I think I even recall some of the residents saying they needed free food because they couldn't use their fridge for a day. Great investment by our government!

This is the result of a "Project". When you pay 16 year old girls to have as many babies as they can, out of wedlock. Food Stamps, and Welfare, breed crime and violence.

She should just pour in more money

Just pour in more money and the problem will solve itself. If the residents had an unlimited supply of other people's money, they would feel better about themselves and stop committing criminal acts. With only most, but not all of their needs being funded, it's no wonder that some of them are so angry!

Throw in another gun buyback

Throw in another gun buyback and the problem is solved.

I hope the shooter was using

I hope the shooter was using a gun made in North Carolina.

Ain't that the truth.
