Multiple Shots Fired Into Kinston Apartment With Two Year Old Inside

Kinston police said they are looking for whoever fired a gun into a Kinston apartment before dawn Thursday morning.

Officers told WITN they got the call around 3:30 a.m. Thursday for shots fired at 802 East Shine Street, Apartment 6C. That is at the Simon Bright apartments, a public housing complex.

Police said three people were inside at the time, including a 2 year old. No one was hurt.

The incident is something residents say happens too often.

"Somebody needs to stand up and let them know, enough is enough," says longtime resident Brenda Gary. "I refuse to keep living like this. I want peace and peace we will have."

Officers do not have a motive in the shooting, or a suspect description.

If you have any information about this crime that could help police track down the shooter you are asked to call (252) 939-3220.
