It was Wilmington's first reported shooting of 2021 following what was a violent 2020. The year finished with a New Year's Eve shooting that left a 19-year-old injured. He became the 169th and final shooting victim of 2020, the second-highest recorded by Delaware Online/The News Journal since the newspaper began tracking shootings in 2011.
