    I pray for the church and its members. I regret that this happened. I have a fear of the same thing happening at my church because we are in a bad part of Kinston as well. It honestly saddens me because it's usually the youth, and most of whom I went to school. It's heartbreaking to hear/read about/watch something like this. --->>>St. Mark, you are in my prayers!

    Some people have no boundaries-not that it is okay to meaninglessly discharge a firearm anywhere.

    It is sad to say that these things occur. But it is in a bad section of Kinston. Thugs are running wild with the gangs.Now I say thugs because that is all it is doing this. I hope that WITN will post this. Due to the fact every time I say thug they will not post it. How about the First amendment?? How about not worrying so much about being politically correct and print the truth?? Thugs are thugs in all colors!Sometimes I wonder whose side you are on??

    Highly unusual...they normally have their shootings on Sunday afternoon. I guess somebody needed killing and they just couldn't wait any longer.
