POLICE: Gardner's BBQ Locations Hit By Gunfire

Police are investigating why someone would shoot into two Gardner's BBQ locations in Rocky Mount Thursday night.

The first shooting happened at the Gardner's on Fairview Road around 7:30 p.m. The restaurant had people inside, but no one was hurt.

Police say a second Gardner's location, this one at Edgecombe Meadows Drive, was also shot at with a person inside.

There have been no arrests in either shooting.

    Rocky Mount has not had any murders so far this year. They had 15 in 2008. If you are going to quote information, make sure you are accurate. Other cities in the state have had several murders so far this year. Crime rates are calculated per capita and include other crimes besides homicide. Quit giving RMT a bad rap.

    When I was in college I worked at Parkers in Greenville and did catering for Bill's in Wilson. The Parkers on 10th street in Greenville will pill your plate up! It's always fresh and so is the Memorial Drive location. The one in Wilson is hit or miss, but it was ranked as a top 10 roadside resturant by USA Today. People drive 12 miles out of their way from I 95 to eat there. Bills is the largest catering restaurant in America. He has over 40 cooking trucks and several 18 Wheelers. He caters to Canada, NY, DC and California all of the time. He has done caters for up to 25,000 at one time. Gardners is good when they change the buffet and put fresh food out. Bs is good and so is Wilburs and Kings.

    Keep up the good work gang bangers. Make RM number one in the state for murder. I know we can do it! "Remarkable Rocky Mount"

    Well, since there was a gun crime, ban guns! Actually just ban BBQ, it was just a ticking time bomb, waiting to attack. Like all the pit bulls.

    Well Robert my wife will argue with you on the fact that Parkers is the best. It is what it is to me. I goto the one that is located on hwy 301 right up the street from the mall at least once or twice every every 3 months with my family ... I cringe to think what it would have been like to have been inside. Especially since I have a CCW license. I guess this is something to think about. I agree with a previous poster and its probably a previous employee.

    Gardners food is not that great but no reason to shot. Parkers is the best by far.
