WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Officers with the Wilmington Police Department have arrested a man in connection to a shooting on Clay Street.

About the same time, two other officers stopped a vehicle at Covil Avenue and Randal Parkway that was taking someone to the hospital after being shot in the chest with a birdshot. EMS arrive and took the passenger to the hospital.

Officers found two other victims with minor injuries while responding to their initial call on Clay Street. They were also taken to the hospital for treatment.
