Four people, including three teens, shot in Wilmington Saturday night


Esteban Parra,

At least four people were shot Saturday night in Wilmington as violent demonstrators raged, damaging portions of the city's downtown. 

The shootings took place in just over an hour and three of the victims were shot in West Center City, blocks from where the protests were taking place. 

Investigators did not believe Sunday afternoon that the shootings were related to the violent protests, a police spokesman told Delaware Online/The News Journal.

In the first shooting, police said a 46-year-old man was injured by gunfire about 9:50 p.m. in the 400 block of W. 31st St. Investigators found the man in a hospital, where police said he was reported to be stable. 

The next shooting took place about 10:25 p.m. in West Center City.

There, police said, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were shot while in the 600 block of W. Seventh St. Other than police reporting the victims to be stable, no other details were provided. 

About 40 minutes later and two blocks away, police said an 18-year-old man was shot. 

That incident took place about 11:05 p.m. in the 600 block of W. Fifth St.
