Innocent bystander remembered in Wilmington

WILMINGTON - July 26, 2012

A small memorial now stands outside the home where 42-year-old Winfield Archie lived.

On Tuesday night, police say he was working on a car with a small group of people on the 700 block of 9th Street.

A gunman fired into the crowd, killing Archie.

Family members say they are now left with only memories of a peaceful man who took care of his family and the neighborhood.

"He was just a nice person. I'm going to miss home, really going to miss him," a family member told Action News.

Another man was also shot in the leg.

Police don't believe he or Archie were the intended target.

Officers continue to search for the shooter.
