WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are investigating after ShotSpotter alerted officers to N. 30th Street Sunday night in Creekwood.

Officers did not find any shell casings, but they did get a call from a man claiming to have been shot at by two people.

The victim told police that after an argument with the mother of his child, the woman, whose name was not released, fired a revolver at him. He says another man then picked up a gun and shot at him, too. He says he was shot at three times, but not hit.

    The Second Amendment allows an individual the right to bear arms. However a private citizen can not legally take a weapon into a government building. Don’t believe me, try it at the courthouse or other city buildings. The apartments in Creekwood are government owned, operated and maintained so the ban should extend to them.

    Oh of course they should be banned; then the bad guys won’t carry them either. (Ask Chicago how that’s working out for them.)

    On a serious note though there does need to be at least some protocol in place; other than a clear cut self defense INSIDE the home.. Yes Evict and prosecute, but if you aren’t a felon then yes you should have the right to possess one by your nightstand or whatever for defensive use in an emergency. Use it OUTside the home.. Bye bye

    YOU are assuming all people in Creek wood do NOT have felony convictions.

    Tom is assuming all Creek wood residents (and or visitors) do.

    Either way the new Ceo is on the job – lets see what she does

    I have heard of the second amendment.

    I’ve also read the occupancy rules for living free, on the taxpayer’s sweat and labor, of the WHA. No firearms.

    So let her make a choice. WHA FREE HOUSING with no firearms.

    OR, maintain firearms in housing she pays for.

    Do you feel embarrassed when you look in the mirror?

  • SurfCityTom says:

    arrives next week. Let’s see if she hops on this case?

    The man was shot at by the Baby Mama. What was he doing there? Isn’t there a no firearms policy for WHA properties?

    If the answer to the second question is yes, let the eviction preceedings begin.

    Then he was shot at by another man. What does it take to have both males added to the do not trespass list?

    Hope she realizes there’s more to the job then just filing pretty reports with HUD and remaining sober when behind the wheel.

  • Confused? says:

    Why in the world would they have a fire arms ban in Creekwood? With all the crime in that area, common sense would tell you that residence being armed and protected would be vital in order to maintain some sense of security. Have you heard of a little thing called the second amendment?
