City shooting injures 18-year-old

Wilmington police are looking for the suspect in a shooting that left an 18-year-old boy wounded Tuesday night.

Police say the victim was sitting on the steps outside a house in the 600 block of West 5th Street around 6:15pm when he heard several shots, started to run, and realized he'd been shot in the upper body.

A State Police helicopter took him to Christiana Hospital, where he's in stable condition.

Police don't have any suspect information yet, and they're asking anyone with information to call them, Crimestoppers or the WPD's confidential tipline, 576-3990.
