The new year may not have had a more heartbreaking start than in the Nash County city of Rocky Mount. From Monday to Friday there were five shootings--one fatal and two others leaving the victims in critical condition. Only the shooters in the third and fourth shootings remain unidentified. As WITN has been covering the week's events in Rocky Mount we've spoken with a lot of people in the communities where the crimes have occurred, including the Reverend Leonard Johnson, whose Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church is not far from where some of the shootings occurred. Like many others he's trying to make sense of the tragedy.
