WILMINGTON -- It was shortly after midnight Monday when 27-year-old Jimmy Lewis was shot to death in his car outside Hanover Shopping Center on Oleander Drive.

Police say it started as a robbery, and they say 19-year-old Quinten Marshawn Massiah admitted to the shooting.

Officers say Lewis was at an ATM when Massiah pointed a gun inside the car. When Lewis saw the gun, police think he tried to drive away but Massiah had fired his handgun.

Lewis managed to drive a few hundred feet, but he died. His car was still running, and his foot was on the brake.

Massiah has been in jail twice for robbery with a dangerous weapon and had four previous assaults on his record, including one with a gun. He's in jail now with no bond.
