Moving vehicle, home struck by gunfire in Wilm.
By Tom Lehman

Gunfire struck a moving vehicle and a home in Wilmington's Riverside section just after midnight Wednesday, city police said.

Residents living on Jensen Drive heard gunshots and a single bullet struck the home, damaging a window and a mirror, Cpl. Mark Ivey said.

A vehicle driving south on Northeast Boulevard was also hit multiple times by gunfire, Ivey said.

He said investigators believe an argument involving multiple women in the area of East 27th Street and Northeast Boulevard may precipitated the gunfire.

No injuries have been reported. Suspect information was not available Wednesday afternoon.

Anyone with information can call the Wilmington Police Criminal Investigations Division at (302) 576-3620 or the Confidential Tip Line at (302) 576-3990.
