On November 29, 2010 at about 8 p.m., Harbor Area patrol officers responded to a 9-1-1- call of a shooting at an apartment building located in the 900 block of North Fries Avenue. When the officers arrived, they found a male victim, later identified as Johnny Carbajal of Wilmington, lying on the floor inside of an apartment unit with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds to his torso.
