Wilmington police say 2 men are dead after a pair of overnight shootings, and officers would like to hear from anyone who may know something about the crimes.

Officers responding to a 9-1-1 call from Wilmington Hospital around 12:45 Sunday morning learned the first victim had been taken there in a private car.

He underwent emergency surgery, but died of his wounds.

The second victim was shot 3 times at 27th and Tatnall Streets around 2 AM and was taken to Christiana Hospital, where he died.

Anyone who can help investigators piece together the details can text TIP WILMINGTON and their information to 8-8-8-7-7-7.
