Creekwood shooting victim in fair condition

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Emergency crews responded to a shooting Saturday in the 1000 block of North 30th Street, which is in the Creekwood community of Wilmington.

Officers said they found a male victim in his late teens/early twenties with multiple gun shot wounds after 10 p.m.

That man has been identified as 27-year-old Alfonzo Jenkins, according to Lt. Blanton with WPD, and as of Monday, he's said to be in fair condition.

Police said he was shot in both legs and rushed to the hospital. He told officers that he was standing outside when someone approached him and started shooting, according to Blanton.

Jenkins was conscious and breathing on his way to the hospital.

The SABLE helicopter was initially called out to help with the search for a suspect, but neighbors could not provide much of a description so the effort was called off.
