WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Police event reports show a Burgaw teenager, Raequan Dupree Rouse, was shot at 12 times before one bullet stuck him. He died in the hospital Sunday evening.

Police said Rouse, 18, was dropped off at the hospital by two people who ran away before they could be detained.

The following was communicated by police over their radios, "They have the victim in the ER, they went 10-43 [chase] on the vehicle and fled the scene. They dropped the victim off."

The event report shows that special police chased two people on foot at the hospital but could not catch them. 

Rouse was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.

Police spokeswoman Linda Rawley said officers responded to a call of shots fired at the 600 block of N. 10th Street around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

A 911 call was made where the caller said, "There were about 15 shots just exchanged." The call continued, "I seen some people running around. There was some fussing going on. Then as I was knocking on a door, gunfire erupted and I could see multiple flashes. I think there were about 15 shots exchanged."

Officers arrived and located multiple shell casings and a blood trail. Police say that information indicates that subjects fled the scene in the vehicle.

Marquise Jackson, who says he was a close friend of Rouse, said the teen belonged to a local Blood gang and was killed by rival members of a gang.

Jackson said he doesn't know exactly who is responsible for his friend's death, but he thinks he has a good idea who was behind the shooting.

Jasmine Walker, another friend of Rouse, said she will dearly miss her friend.

"It just took a toll to my heart to hear that he's gone," said Walker. "It's sad to lose him."

    Mississippi’s giant house party might not have the fanfare of 2016. But, it’s still a must visit event for families across the magnolia state. This year is not a political year in Mississippi. So, the political stumping is not nearly as significant as it can be. Yet, this Wednesday and Thursday, people will gather under the pavilion at Founders Square and listen to a series of speeches from Mississippi’s elected leaders.
