WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The victim in last night's fatal shooting has been identified as 22-year-old David Terrell McPhatter, of Riegelwood.

Family members did not want to speak on camera, but they told WWAY McPhatter was in Wilmington visiting when a group of men affiliated with the Bloods gang came looking for him. They say the gang members also live in Riegelwood.

Wilmington Police say a fight broke out between two men in the 800 block of Castle Street just before 11 p.m. Saturday. The fight apparently led to a shooting. McPhatter died at the scene due to multiple gunshot wounds.

The shooter took off. He's still on the loose.

WPD investigators welcome information from anyone who may have witnessed the shooting or have information about it. Witnesses have said there were at least 100 people in the general area at the time of the murder.
