Two Homes In Kinston Neighborhood Hit By Gunfire

Kinston police are looking at whether two shootings in the same neighborhood Saturday are related.

The first shooting happened around 2:20 p.m. at an apartment in the 900 block of East Bright Street. Police say that's when a bullet hit the front door of the apartment. The resident told police they heard several gunshots just before their apartment was struck.

Minutes later officers got a call to the 300 block of South McDaniels Street, just about a block away. There they found a bullet had hit the home and was lodged inside.

No one was hurt in either shooting, and police say they are continuing to followup on all leads.

    Kinston -- Previously honored as an All America City now plagued with gangs, thugs and drugs. Unfortunately this has become the norm in many areas of the country and it will only get worse unless and until welfare programs are drastically reformed. We are rewarding single women for having kids who become high school dropouts, gang members, violent criminals and drug dealers.

      When you tell this to uneducated poor people, they choose not to hear you. The truth hurts their ears.

      I think you are off base with your assumption that criminals are the product of single mothers. Children live as they are taught, doesnt make them the product of a one parent home
