WPD Continues to Investigate Thursday Night Shooting

WILMINGTON --  Officicers continue to investigate a Thursday night shooting that put one man in the hospital.

Officials with the Wilmington Police Department say 25-year-old Eugene Kawaskii Logan was shot at least once while sitting on steps of a house on 6th Street. 

Logan was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

On Thursday night, Logan only provided his name, and refused to provide further details.

Detectives plan to interview him again when he has recovered further.  

Officers interviewed several people who were inside the house when the incident occurred. Several reported hearing what sounded like firecrackers. Then, they said, the victim walked inside through the front door with a gun shot wound.

Witnesses were able to provide very few additional details. At least one reported seeing a man run through the side yard, but the suspect description was very sketchy.

The case remains under investigation.
