Rashawn Hines back in jail for attempted murder as prison sentence ends

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington teen once called one of the city’s worst offenders landed back in jail as he was set to be released from prison.

Rashawn Hines, 19, was scheduled to released from state prison Friday, but he was booked again at the New Hanover County Jail the same day for two counts of attempted murder, Wilmington Police say.

Police say Hines shot Darryl Terry in the leg and also shot at Tymir Wigfall on June 20, 2013. That’s the same night Jeffery Henry, 17, was killed.

Last summer, Wilmington Police Chief Ralph Evangelous called Hines one of the city’s worst offenders. Days later he was back behind bars on a probation violation, which earned him a nine-month prison sentence.

Hines is scheduled to be back in court July 31.
