Two More Shootings In Kinston

Two more shootings have occurred in Kinston, after four homes this weekend were struck by gunfire.

Police say Tuesday afternoon around 3:00 p.m. they got a call about a vehicle struck by gunfire. Marvin Davis told them he was driving in the area of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and East Lenoir avenue. Police recovered shell casings in the area of East Lenoir and Raleigh Street and witnesses told police the shooter was driving a burgundy two-door car.

Then early this morning police responded to a home on East Lenoir Avenue where a bullet had struck a home. Officers found the bullet in a hallway closet.

No one was injured in either shooting.

This past weekend four homes were hit in three different shooting cases. Police said it appears those were all drive-by shootings and they were investigating whether they all were connected.
