Five people have died after a violent night in Wilmington, Delaware Monday.

The shooting was one of three in Wilmington Monday night that resulted in death or serious injury.

Police say a 32-year-old man died at the hospital after he had been shot. He has been identified as Kevin Thompson. A 33-year-old man was also shot and taken to the hospital in stable condition.
