WILMINGTON — Wilmington Police are asking for residents help with the investigations into several shootings that took place Tuesday morning — no injuries were reported due to the gunshots, but one incident did have a car run off the road after being fired upon.

“Officers responded to the 400 block of Mercer Avenue around 10:15 a.m. and the 600 block of N. 11th St. around 10:30 a.m. in reference to ShotSpotter alerts of multiple rounds fired in each area. No injuries were reported, but two houses did sustain damage,” according to a WPD press release. 

This is just the latest in what has been a particularly busy week for shootings in Wilmington which has seen more than 20 incidents in four days.

“The third incident occurred around 11:10 a.m. in the 100 block of Wayne Drive. A car lost control after being struck by gunfire and hit a trailer carrying equipment. The car then ran off the road, where the driver abandoned it and fled the scene. Although no one was injured by gunshots, a bystander in the area injured himself while trying to flee the scene,” the release states.
