Man Shot In Chest Christmas Night

A man is in critical condition after police say he was wounded in a Christmas night shooting.

Warsaw police say Derrick Highsmith was shot at his home last night on West Best Street between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Chief Mike Webster says they're looking for Eric Hall, who is also known as "Go-Go", as a person of interest in this case. The chief says Highsmith and another person got into a disagreement and it escalated into the shooting.

Highsmith is in critical, but stable condition at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington after being shot in the chest.

Webster says they are looking for Hall for questioning in the shooting as well as for outstanding warrants. If you know his whereabouts, you should call Warsaw police at 910-293-7816.

    Well I can update you on Derek's status but that is all I can do. I have been at the hospital every other night since Day 1. He is doing alot better and is healing faster than thought during the first few hours at the hospital. He is talking and eating just fine which is great since the type of injuries obtained.

    He would be a fool to still be in Warsaw. The story does need an update about the status of finding Go-Go and anyone else involved.

      This is a sad thing that has happened, but as you must know, there are few men that are actually MEN!!!! I feel for those children that must grow up without a father, but if this is the man that they must know as a father, then they are better off. It seems to me that he thought more of himself than his kids. He must of not thought much of himself due to the ignorance that he used during his time of anger. People stop the killing, ignorance is defined by fools such as this that don't know how to control their actions. Back in the day if someone had a problem they would talk about it or fight with their fist, today cowards us the fast a easy way. Instead of being a man, they coward down and show their ignorace. IGNORANCE IS BLISS, ISN'T IT?

    Time to pray for our youth. Too much hatred, not enough love. Two lives changed forever in seconds.
