WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say witnesses are not cooperating as they investigate the murder of a 20-year-old man over the weekend.

Around 12:24 a.m. Saturday officers responded to a shots fired call in the 4400 block of McClelland, according to WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley. While officers were searching the area they received another call about a body in the front yard of 4410 McClelland Drive. That's where they found Drayshawn Dowd in the bushes. They say Dowd had been shot several times. He died at the hospital

Witnesses told police Dowd had been at a party in the area and got into a fight before leaving. His body was found a short time later. But police say witnesses are not saying very much more. Rawley says detectives believe there are several people who know much more about what happened then they have told investigators.
