Right now, at 10:12 pm, there is a crisis situation in Wilmington NC. A resident has weapons, and the swat team/police are still outside the apartment.This started supposedly around 11 a.m.? but I was not aware of it until around 5 pm. Gunshots were supposedly fired several times, and there is a possible hostage inside. Other people report that it is a local police officer who resides in the apartments, but this has not been confirmed via myself. Many residents were not allowed to park as usual in front of their apartments, they ended up parking far away and being either escorted by police to their homes, or just walking carefully in.
