Shooter Stood in the Middle of the Street Killing One Man, Surveillance Video Captured the Incident, But No Arrests
The unidentified gunman stepped into the middle of the street early Tuesday morning in the summer of 2014, opening fire on a silver car that had just arrived. The incident was caught on surveillance video.
According to Wilmington police, the shooting occurred at about 12:50 a.m. on West Third Street across from the Yummy Bite store near the intersection of North Scott Street.
Brandon A. Wiggins, 26, was shot multiple times inside his silver Honda Accord. He was rushed to the hospital, but he died en route.
Je Kim, the owner of Yummy Bite, said that his surveillance cameras captured the fatal shooting. They run 24 hours a day, even when the store is closed. Kim’s brother lives above the store and heard the gunfire around 1 a.m.
Wilmington detectives retrieved the video, which shows an unidentified gunman walking down West Third Street next to the store and waiting. When Wiggins pulls up across the street, the gunman walks into the street and stops. He then opens fire multiple times in rapid succession before running away in the same direction he arrived.
Kim, who has owned the store for about 6 years said the area has its crime problems. There have been shoplifters and once someone threw an explosive inside his store.
Clara Fisher, a board member of the local civic action committee, who lives nearby, was awakened by gunshots as well.
“We normally don’t have this kind of thing in this area,” said Frank Robinson, president of the committee, “Normally, it’s quiet…”
Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call Detective Joe Bucksner at (302) 576-3629, the Wilmington Police Confidential Tip Line at (302) 576-3629, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800)TIP-3333.
