A 45-year-old woman is dead after an early-morning shooting in Wilmington's Creekwood Community. Police say a couple was driving in a truck down 30th Street between Emory Street and Clayton Place around 3 a.m. to pick someone up. The man in the truck said they asked two men if they had seen the person they were picking up. He says they two men walked up to the drivers side and demanded money. When the woman said they didn't have any money, the man says one of the other men shot her in the head. Police say at least one other shot went into a nearby apartment building. The victim is identified as Michelle Francene Crutchfield, age 45, of Wilmington. Investigators are looking for two black men in their early twenties who were wearing dark clothes. One is described as having straight dreads, chin or shoulder length; the other has close-cut hair. They were last seen walking north on N. 30th Street.

she was one of the nicest

she was one of the nicest person i have ever met, she didnt desereved to be killed by 2 thugs. R.I.P WE LOVE U

How many more...

How many more people have to be shot, raped, killed, assaulted, and or victimized in our Downtown before something is done about it?!?!?! Thugs have taken over our community and are picking off people one at a time. Don't end up in the wrong place at the wrong time or YOU will be a news story. I bet the thugs who did this have a 'rap' sheet as long as Interstate 40. Yet, they continue to roam the streets. Gotta love our judicial system.

What`s happening is when

What`s happening is when people like this is finally caught they get off to easy, people like this should go tho the point of no re-turn, never to see day light again, and maybe, just maybe while they are there they may seek jesus before they die .

My heart goes out to the

My heart goes out to the victim but come on,out in Creekwood at 3am.I KNOW that we have the RIGHT to be out at any given time but this is kind of strange.Why only shoot the woman and not the passenger in fear that he could identify them and why wasn't the person that they were "picking" up wasn't at someone home.

Creekwood killing

She got shot because she owed the suspect money. Nice girl. You can't go around gettin' high for free! Yeah Right.

dont you know

DONT YOU KNOW THAT THE ONLY PEOPLE OUTSIDE IN CREEKWOOD AT 3 A.M. IN THE MORING ARE DRUG DEALERS AND CRACK HEADS. NO ONE IN THEYRE RIGHT MIND WILL GO TO CREEKWOOD AT THREE IN THE MORNING TO PICK SOMEONE UP. THE TAXI CABS WANT EVEN COME AFTER DARK. SHE WASNT PICKN UP NOBODY IT WAS A SET UP AND THE PASSEGER HAD SOMTHING TO DO WITH IT.

"No Sense"

I really don't care what time the young lady came to creekwood or what she came to creekwood for; It still doesn't make any sense for someone to kill that woman. I was raised in Creekwood as a child, I have sense moved not just out of creek wood but out of the state entirey. I always knew creek wood was no place for me. I have my kids to think about. I refused to raise them there period!! I knew my mother couldn't help herself, but I knew there was something I could do to help us all. Creekwood definitely need to be torn down and not rebuilt. The person or persons who done this to this young woman need to be very ashamed of themslves. I heard that woman died over $5.dollars, did you hear me...$5.00 dollars!! Come on guys...and the sad part about it...it was her $5.00. I can't wait until they are caught and put to justice. I want to give my condolences to her family; may God bless you all and see you through this difficult time.

To Old to be out gettin High at 3am.

This lady should have been home in her bed sleep but no she's in creekwood trying to score.That's sad I say stop the druggies and there will be no need 4 pushers!!
