Third Drive-By Shooting In Kinston This Week

There's been yet another drive-by shooting in Kinston, the third one this week.

The latest happened Thursday afternoon in the 800 block of East Bright Street. Officers found three shell casings and one bullet broke an upstairs window of an apartment at 803 East King Street.

The shooting happened near a school and a Head Start center.

A witness told police he saw a man get into a gold Honda with three other men inside. No one was injured.

On Tuesday there were two drive-by shootings. The first happened around 10:30 a.m. in the 500 block of Thompson Street. A vehicle and a house were hit by the gunfire. That shooting happened about a block from an alternative school.

Then, about nine hours later shots were fired in the 800 block of Lincoln Street. In that shooting, one bullet came into the home through a window. At the time three people were inside and three outside on the porch. No one was hurt in that shooting either.

Police have not said if they believe the three shootings are related or not.

    I live in an area close to Daniels & Herritage and you can hear gunshots all hours of the day & night. Sometimes as many as 8 - 10 in a group. Sounds like the OK Corral.

      i agree, it's time to put our National Guard & Army Reserves in the streets, locate and identify the Hot Zones, move in with everything needed to keep a neighborhood on lockdown, if you don't belong there, get lost or get locked up, Kinston, Greenville, Rocky Mount and any other city thats going to the dogs.

    Hey Mayor and City Council, I think its about time to end this foolishness called Public Safety....IT DONT WORK!!!!!! A Fireman does NOT know how to do POLICE work and vice/versa. Put someone in charge of that Police Department that will raise morale, draw good officers back to this city and TAKE THE STREETS BACK without being worried about the ratio of Blacks to Whites being arrested!!!!!!!!!! Make Changes or WE WILL CHANGE YOU!!!!!!

      You have to feel some sympathy for the teachers who have to work in those schools!

    Like Kinston, name me a town or city anywhere that has a majority of citizens who are black and violence and lawlessness will be prevalent there. It's not all blacks -- I have three black families in homes adjacent to my home and no one could ask for better or more considerate neighbors. It's the drug and gang culture and general disrespect for authority and for life that is perpetrated by rewarding women for doing nothing more in life than having children in order to receive government benefits. I contine to hope that someday our politicians will wake up and put a stop to this idiocy.

    What is wrong with letting them kill each other off. Sounds like a plan.

    When will this end. Where are the county leaders. Our leaders are looking the other way. It seems the blacks are shooting and killing each other. And no its not the white people fault. Same old same old
