Wilmington 9th grader shot to death identified as Brandon Wingo

- The Howard High School of Technology community in Wilmington is in mourning again, and grief counselors are back.

Thursday afternoon, 9th grader Brandon Wingo was shot in the head and killed, just a few blocks away.

It happened around the 900 block of Clifford Brown Walkway at about 3:20pm.

Wingo, 15, died at the hospital.

He was a student at the same high school where another teen died after a fight in the bathroom.

Amy Joyner-Francis died April 21 after investigators say three girls assaulted her.

One teen is charged with criminally negligent homicide. Prosecutors say they will seek to have her tried as an adult.

The other two charged with third degree misdemeanor conspiracy will be going to trial June 15.

Thursday, principal Stanley Spoor left a message on the school’s website that reads, “All of the Howard community is pained by the loss of this young man and we all grieve his death. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.”

Nobody has been arrested for this killing. Anyone with information is asked to call 302-576-3939 or text anonymously to 888777. Information leading to an arrest and conviction may lead to a $10,000 reward.
