"She had a kind heart. She used to help Mr. Brown across the street. And also my uncle across the street," Atiyha Martin-El, Hill's sister, told NBC10. "When she went to food pantries, anybody that needed something to eat, she was the first one that actually cared enough to do that. She was a great person. I don't understand why this would happen to my little sister like this."
While responding to the shooting, two Wilmington Police officers were injured in a crash on C and Heald streets in Wilmington. Both officers were taken to the hospital for evaluations.
Police have not yet released a description of the gunman. If you have any information on the shooting, please call Detective Steven Bender at 302-576-3621.
