An officer of the Wilmington Police Department responded to the area and saw the suspect who was described by the citizen.
Police say the suspect, Dashawn Broomer, was taken into custody.
Police say a search of the area turned up a handgun, a box of ammunition and a bag of more than 100 grams of marijuana.
We're getting rain well ahead of our cold front. Expect to need that umbrella on and off all day and tonight, too. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities.
With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
