UPDATE: Police release Saturday shooting victim's name


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police are still investigating a Saturday shooting that sent a man to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators say Bruce Lloyd, 36, was shot just before 3 p.m. Saturday near the 1300 block of Greenfield Street. Dispatchers say several calls came in reporting multiple shots fired there.

Wilmington Police say when officers got to the scene they found Lloyd, who had moved himself to a nearby porch, with a gunshot wound to the left waistline and another to the right buttocks. Officers say they also discovered a few shell casings near the scene, along with a bullet that went straight through a car onto to street.

Lloyd was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with what police say were non-life-threatening injuries. WPD says Lloyd did not give officers much information, first giving them two different names for himself.

Police do have one witness who believes the victim got into an argument with one other person, which may have escalated into gunshots. Wilmington Police are asking for witnesses to come forward as they continue to investigate.
