Police ID 24-year-old man shot dead Monday night in Wilmington's Southbridge neighborhood

A 24-year-old man who was shot dead Monday in Wilmington's Southbridge neighborhood has been identified by city police as Zyair Burton.

Burton's killer remains at large.

Wilmington officers were dispatched to the 400 block of S. Claymont St. at about 8:20 p.m. on Monday.
