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.
