“There was a fight outside,” said Captain Mark Overwise, “and apparently the shooting stemmed from an argument resulting from that fight.”

Overwise says there were 20 plus shots fired, and officers had to break up the fight that was still going on with the victim’s lifeless body on the ground.

Authorities say a second man, 25, showed up at Wilmington Hospital with a gunshot wound. He was listed in stable condition.

Police were looking for a van that got away.

“A white van was seen leaving northbound the wrong way on 8th Street with the possible offenders,” he said.

The shooting happened across the street from a big, well lit-parking garage with several surveillance cameras that police were hoping to get access to for the investigation.
