Man Gunned Down on Area Street

Investigators closed off an area road for about four hours this morning after a deadly shooting outside a gas station.

Wilmington Police closed N Market Street from the 4000 to 4200 blocks after someone shot and killed a man near the Shell Station around 3:45 a.m. Friday.

Investigators didn’t immediately identify the victim. They also didn't reveal any information on possible suspects.

As the investigation continued, police diverted traffic at W 39th Street and Lea Boulevard as they warned drivers to avoid the area. The road closure continued until after 8 a.m.
