Greenville Police Investigate Shooting At ABC Store

Greenville police are investigating a shooting that happened friday night at an ABC store.

Police say they responded to a call around 9pm at an ABC store at 3196 East 10th Street.

The ABC officer reported he located what appeared to be a bullet hole in front of the building.

Police say the single shot may have been fired from a dark colored truck that was last seen traveling east on 10th Street at the time.

No injuries were reported.

    Its not the complexes causing the problem, its the bad ghetto neighborhoods surrounding them. Whats an easier target than taking advantage of college students. Just like the place right next to pirates cove where people hop over the fence rob people at gunpoint, etc, and going across the street to copper beech causing issues. Just drive over and see random people who dont belong their walking around. Maybe if apartment complexes that have college students would be gated in, with security you wouldnt have the crimes being committed. Take for example NCC and the landing you dont hear about shootings and robbing like you do everywhere else.. I wonder why. Its about being proactive and making things safe. It gets old having the same problems and no solution to them.

    I live on the east side of town and it was safer before all these complexes were built for students! Traffic has become a nightmare and many of the acts of violence are due to people who live in these complexes!

    To Glock Lover: My feelings exactly. They think that creating new laws will prevent these crimes, however the people committing them aren't going to follow the law. It just hurts the law abiding citizens. I say arm everyone without an arrest record and the crime rate will plummit.

    The issue is not about guns...it's about the ability of human beings to make decisions. It doesn't matter how many laws a government makes, if one chooses to make a bad decision no law will stop him/her from carrying through with that decision. As far as guns, it could also be a rock, a home made bomb, a bat, a knife etc. The best thing for citizens to do is carry a glock 30 concealed(w/ permit of course ;)) and be observant of your surroundings. I may go down but, I am not gonna make it easy for them.

    To Pirate: you stay away from the east side of town just as much as the west. Are you home all the time?

    Just another example that Tenth St. is so sketchy.. with the murder of the Falcone guy across the street, it definately keeps me away from the east side of town just as much as the west. Copper Beech is too nice to be in that neighborhood in my opinion..
