WPD investigating afternoon shooting

READ MORE: WPD investigating afternoon shooting

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington police are investigating a shooting that happened just after 2:00 pm today on Lullwater Drive, which is off Market Street between Kerr Ave. and New Centre Drive.

Police say the man was shot multiple times and was taken to the hospital. No word on his condition or if anyone has been arrested.

The victim reportedly ran to his neighbor's home for help after he was shot. The neighbor told WWAY the victim appeared to be shot multiple times in the chest and leg. The victim told his neighbor that four men broke into his home, demanded money, shot him and stole his TV.

Another neighbor, Doug Moore, tells us the crime in the area is bad, but he never expected something like this to happen so close to home.

“Usually you hear gunshots all the time around here, or the helicopters freaking going, but never any problem with the family,” said Moore.
