25-year old shot in New Castle
« on: February 26, 2009, 01:45:39 PM »
This is way too close to home.

A 25-year-old man was hospitalized Wednesday night following a shooting south of New Castle, said Cpl. Peter Small, a spokesman with New Castle County paramedics.

Police and paramedics were called to unit block of East Sussex Place in the Chaddwyck neighborhood off U.S. 13 and found the victim with a single gun shot wound, Small said.

The victim was treated while being transported to Christiana and was admitted in serious condition, Small said.

New Castle County police are investigating.

One reason why we are moving out of here! About a month ago, they found someone shot to death behind the BJ's at pencader plaza. (which is like walking distance from me) About 2 weeks ago my bank was robbed at 1pm, I was there an hour earlier! And about a year ago a dunkin donuts store owner was shot and killed walking to work (I knew the guy as well,sad) and that was about 5 minutes from my house.

Not counting the numerous times I have seen cops running around my block on foot and patrol cars looking for crooks. Its just not a place to raise a 1 year old or live period.

Yea New Castle County is getting pretty bad and some areas are down right dangerous their are areas off Wilton Blvd that I would never go after dark and Lexington Green Apts I wouldn't even go their durring the day. However PA can be just as bad in some areas so its not just DE.

Yeah, there’s no shortage of crime stories on the Philly news, so I wouldn’t consider simply scootin’ across the border to be the equivalent of headin’ into a safe zone.

But, like everyone says – the revolving-door judicial system that we have keeps the streets juiced up with baddies.
 
That being said, places like Lexington Green, Sparrow Run/Brookmont, Wilton, and the like get a lot of well deserved bad publicity – but they still do not compare to a lot of places in Wilmington.  I often hear people jumping to Wilmington’s defense, but these are most often (maybe not always, but most often) people that rarely (if ever) leave the Market-Street-Rodney-Square-banks-Riverfront area – and even then that’s during the day.  Anyone that ever spent any time in the Bucket, the Market Street area north of Concord Avenue, or Governor Printz Boulevard – will easily leave their doors unlocked when visiting Brookmont.

But that’s why we carry hand-cannons…

Those residents are long gone.  Now, they’re illegal aliens.  There’s more PA tags in there than in PA.  One negative thing that I will gladly say, though, is that Teal Circle is proof-positive that the County doesn’t give a squat about getting drugs off of the streets.  They could drive marked cars through there, and probably get approached.  People literally line up in their cars to buy stuff.

One thing of many I have noticed lately is the amount of graffiti in New Castle County and it is starting to really anger me.

Yeah, it’s starting to get that NYC look to the place.  I’m afraid to stop at red lights, now, because they may tag my car when I’m sittin’ there.

Of course, there are those short-bussers out there who think that graffiti is merely a harmless prank, or worse – art work.  It’s funny because if I throw a flaming bag of poop that is tied to a rock, through their front window – I consider that to be a harmless prank.  The resulting fire is, you guessed it – art work.  And even though the short-bussers and I are on the same harmless prank/art work page – we don’t see eye to eye.

Well, if we can get a few million other people like us together, perhaps we can fix this sinking mess of a nation.

another shooting in New Castle last night this time off Wilton Blvd.

A 27-year-old man was shot to death and another man was pistol-whipped during a home invasion west of New Castle late Friday, police reported this morning.

New Castle County police said the two victims were in a townhome in the first block of Revelle Street in the Wilton area when they answered a knock on the door. Two males then forced their way in and a fight began.

The man who was killed was shot in the upper part of his body, and the other was hit in the face with a handgun.

Police and paramedics arrived at 11:50 p.m. to find the body of the man in the foyer of the home, and the injured man was located in a nearby home where he had fled. He was later treated for minor injuries at Christiana Hospital and released.
