Multiple state and local investigations were launched after an armed suspect was shot and killed by Wilmington police.

WILMINGTON — Wilmington Police Department officers opened fire on an armed suspect who refused to comply with commands from authorities; the man died at the scene.

Shortly before 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, Wilmington Police Department (WPD) officers received a “shot fired” call from the 600 block of Owens Court, a cul de sac that directly borders the Pine Valley Elementary School.

According to WPD, a 62-year-old male suspect had barricaded himself in his residence. After police arrived, the man exited his house with “multiple firearms.”

“Officers gave multiple commands, which he did not follow. Officers shot the suspect, who died at the scene,” according to WPD.

It is not clear if the suspect fired at the police; WPD did report that no officers were injured.

There are currently three investigations into the incident, including one by the State Bureau of Investigation (the SBI, which investigates all officer-involved shootings), an internal review by WPD, and a further investigation into the initial shots fired call.

“Officers involved will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigations,” according to WPD.
