Bullet Kills Wilmington Man Driving Car

Police in Wilmington say a 29-year-old motorist died when a gunshot passed through his car door and struck him in the left side.

\Police say the death of Morris Cuttino early yesterday is being treated as a homicide. A police spokeswoman says it's the sixth slaying of the year in Wilmington.

Spokeswoman Lucy Crockett says authorities don't have a suspect.

The victim's car ran into an empty lot where it was stopped by a
concrete wall. Cuttino was pronounced dead before he arrived at the
hospital.

State records show Cuttino had been jailed several times for probation violations, speeding to elude arrest, possession of drugs and stolen goods and operating a vehicle without a license.
