Fatal shooting victims ID'd; investigators seek clues
By Frank Gerace

Wilmington police have identified the victims of two fatal weekend shootings, but investigators are still looking for other information about the crimes.

Officers responding to a 9-1-1 call from Wilmington Hospital around 12:45 Sunday morning learned 23-year-old Brian Irby was undergoing emergency surgery.

Irby later died.

Around 2 AM, officers acting on a report of shots fired found 33-year-old Howard Watkins at 27th and Tatnall Streets--he'd been shot 3 times and was taken to Christiana Hospital, where he died.

Anyone with information can call city detectives or Crimestoppers.
