Residents Saddened by Shooting

People in Kinston are still reeling from a shooting Friday that left two people dead and five others injured.

As police continue to search for three suspects a church leader we talked to is saddened by the violence and wants the community to take action. Bishop Anna B. Carr presides over a church that is just two blocks away from where the shooting occurred.

Bishop Carr feels programs to keep kids off the streets and occupy their free time, especially during the after school hours and summer months, would be an effective step. She also believes children need more role models in the community.

Carr has lived in the same Kinston neighborhood for over forty years. She says she's seen dramatic changes in the community since then.
