Lenoir County Lawmen Investigate Gang Violence

Lenoir County law enforcement officials continue to investigate an outbreak of gang violence at a mobile home park.

The Kinston Free Press says members of two reported gangs brawled with guns and bats in the mobile home park at the end of the Daly Waldrop Rd. off U.S. 258 in northern Lenoir County.

Miguel Sandobal, 28, says he was shot and punched in the face.

No arrests have been made, but the paper reports the sheriff department's Community Crime Reduction Team has been assigned to the neighborhood to restore security.

    Well, first off, People have the mind set that " its not going to happen to my neighborhood and that it only happens in big cities" however, it all boils down to the public is uneducated in what signs to look for. Parents are not involved enough in thier childrens lives to research gangs, how they work, signs to look for etc. And until we take a stand and educate ourselves and be PRO- Active all our neighborhoods are in for a rude awakening.. Type gang signs in Google and see whatcha get

    What has happened to my home? Who are these people? Where did these "gangs" come from? And why would a community allow them to co-exist in their neighborhoods?
