Gunfire damages boat at Wrightsville Marina


Wrightsville Beach police issued a citation to a Wilmington man April 28 after a round from the rifle he and his friend were firing near Motts Channel struck and damaged a boat at Wrightsville Marina. Police cited Samuel Jarrell, 19, for damage to personal property after the incident at 3 p.m. Jarrell and a 20-year-old man were on a spoil island across from Motts Channel shooting at targets when a round ricocheted and struck the boat. Because the island is in county jurisdiction, police could only issue a citation and not charge under the town’s ordinance restricting gunfire.
