Authorities Search for Shooting Suspect

WILMINGTON -- A man is recovering from a gunshot wound to the face while police search for the man responsible.

The victim was sitting on his porch near the corner of 11th and Campbell Streets Saturday night at about 9:30 when a man approached him and asked him for money, authorities said.

The victim refused, thinking the man was joking. Then the man shot him just below his eye.

Police say they are looking for an 18-year-old black man with dread locks in connection with the shooting.
