Teen fatally shot Sunday in Wilmington's Hedgeville neighborhood

The fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man Sunday night in Wilmington's Hedgeville community continues to push the number of homicides in Delaware's largest city to highs not seen before.

The spike in shooting homicides follows a national trend of increased gun violence, including in Philadelphia and Indianapolis. Philadelphia this weekend surpassed 500 homicides – a record set in 1990 – and Indianapolis on Saturday passed its all-time record of 245 total homicides set last year.

Wilmington surpassed its grisly milestone on Nov. 14, when 24-year-old Shardae Fuller was shot dead about six blocks from Sunday's fatal shooting. She became the city's 33rd homicide by gunplay, surpassing an unwanted record that had stood since 2017.

Grisly milestone: Woman's death in Wilmington Sunday evening marks deadliest year on record for gun violence

Since Fuller's killing, three others have been fatally wounded in a two-week period:

  • And a man, who police had not named late Sunday, became the 36th person killed by gunfire in Wilmington.

Wilmington's gun deaths increase:

A 19-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday night in Wilmington’s Hedgeville neighborhood.

The latest fatal shooting occurred about 7:45 p.m. in the 1300 block of Elm St.

Wilmington Police provided few details other than the wounded man was taken to a hospital “where he succumbed to his injuries.”

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Brianna Rodrigues at (302) 576-3971. People can also provide information to Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333 or delawarecrimestoppers.org.
