FIRST ON WITN: Sheetz Stabbing Victim Critical

An Alabama man remains in critical condition after he was stabbed during a fight outside a Greenville convenience store near the ECU campus.

Police say 22-year-old Christopher Daniels of Huntsville, Ala. was cut during a fight in the parking lot of the Sheetz at Charles Blvd. and 10th Street. Police say he is under a security watch as they search for a suspect.

Police say the man's throat was cut.

Detectives found Daniels bleeding heavily when they arrived on scene at 2:21 a.m., and say he was transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Greenville Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Carlton Williams says detectives have determined the fight between the groups of people started at another location downtown. Two cars arrived at the Sheetz gas station, and the fight ensued. There were between ten and twelve people involved, Williams said.

Some of the suspects left the area in a vehicle; the others left on foot.

So far there have been no arrests.

    what would martin luther king think if he saw what was going on in the world today...he didn't want all this to happen. He did all he did for a reason....looks like some people are taking advantage by going to school getting an education while others are out there robbing banks and jacking people

    No need to point fingers at the rich or the poor, whether you stay in the surburbs or the projects have little to do with it also everyone is responsible for their actions and whose to say you ccant party or go to the clubs just be civilized and keep your cool till you get home no need for arguing and fighting over girl/boy, or because we bumped in the club. Life is too short for foolishness. And no one can judge anyone but GOD!!!!!!!!!!! lets leave that up to him.

    Appearntly you arent to smart. Clubs are members only clubs that is required by law to get a special use permit. And for your comment that only trouble makers are out at 2 oclock, maybe its some students trying to blow off some steam. You must be to old to remember when you were that age. Its not the bars problem its the thugs who live in this town and the crappy police dept and chief that do nothing about it.

      some 'clubs' are simply 'night clubs' aka bars. when someone refers to a 'club', they generally don't mean the type that has membership because afterfall, that's really just making a social and financial commitment to your dysfunction and substance abuse.

    Close the clubs at 12 o'clock. Close the clubs at 12 o'clock. Close the clubs at 12 o'clock. The only people hanging out at 2/3 o'clock at night are trouble makers, too drunk to think rationally after all the drink specials, and willing to shoot or stab somebody if they even bump elbows with them in a too crowded club. Turn them into members only clubs and if anyone abuses their priviliges, ban them from the club for good. Do the local students a favor and send them home at a decent hour so they'll be up to going to school the next day, not sleeping off a hangover from too many hours of drinking the night before. Some businesses have curtailed their late night hours because of all the drunks being turned out of the clubs at 2/3 o'clock in the morning that are always causing problems.

      You make a logical, commonsense point. Maybe more bar/club/pub owners will do the right thing. Some newer bars require that you order food with alcohol, and offer free chips/nuts around the bar. The bartenders are supposed to 'cut off' someone who appears totally incoherent as well. That's what the Bouncer is for; after the 'bouncing' the kicked out patron is on the LE's plate.

      I'm a grad student, and I work in the computer labs till midnight many nights, and often work in my studio until 1 or 2 am. I live in Washington. I visit that same Sheetz in Greenville after 2am a LOT--and with good reason--I'm hungry after working a 5-hour shift, and spending several hours on school projects, and I want a snack for the drive home. A LOT of people work late shifts, and many students keep late hours pulling all-nighters. Not everyone out late is "up to no good". Some of us are just "night owls"... BTW, I have NEVER been inside any of the clubs in Greenville, nor do I ever plan to be--the ones near campus are a haven for "lower case "G"s, and thug wannabees...

    Personal safety is a PERSONAL responsibility. If more of the honest, law-abiding citizens of Greenville took responsibility for their own PERSONAL safety, and got a concealed carry permit or open carried all the time, these thugs and hoodlums would take their business elsewhere... Luckily no "innocent bystanders" were victiized... This time... Don't be a victim waiting to happen--get some training, get a gun, and if you don't want to open-carry, get a Concealed Handgun Permit. The Law-Abiding citizens of this city need to "step up" and stop letting the criminals "run the show" in Greenville...

      Sadly, even CC permit holders have limitations on where they can carry. I work for the state. If I were a CC, I'd have to leave the weapon at home because I can't even have it on state property. If it's found in my vehicle - automatic arrest. CC permit is not the answer if the law prohibits the carry where it's needed most.
