Wilmington teen shot twice in 3 days

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Police say a Wilmington man was shot twice in three days and the same suspect may be responsible for both attacks.

Police say the 19-year-old man was shot in the buttocks on Wednesday after a confrontation on Delamore Place.

Cpl. Jamaine Crawford says the victim gave police little to go on. He says investigators aren't sure if the 19-year-old was shot by the same man in the two incidents, "but it appears that it may be the same suspect."

On Monday, police found the victim seeking treatment at St. Francis Hospital. Police say he told officers that two men approached him on Delamore Place and asked for marijuana, then demanded money. He told police that he was shot in the back when he ran.
