WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are investigating a Saturday shooting they say left one man dead with a gunshot wound to the back, and another recovering in the hospital.
Officers say Saturday around 2:45 a.m. an unknown man walked up to two men who were sitting outside of their home in the 1500 block of S. 12th Street. That’s where they say words were exchanged before gunshots were fired into a group of people.
Police found eight shell casings at the scene, and EMS transported the two victims to the hospital. Officers say one of them, Julian Jerrod Gibson, 24, was shot in the back, and later died at the hospital. The other, who police say is a female, was shot twice and is in stable condition at the hospital.
There’s no word yet on suspect information, but the Wilmington Police Department asks anyone with information to contact them at (910)343-3600.
