    Most weekend nights there is a lot of noise coming from that apartment complex. At least once a week there is yelling going on that sounds like fighting. I know that children living there. It's sad to know what kind of an environment they are being raised in. I don't know how often police drive through the parking lot there but it seems they need to do it more often. I also wonder if any background checks are being done when those apartments are rented to people.

    The victim knows who shot him. He's just afraid to speak the truth... Until we, as citizens STAND UP against these thugs, they will continue to rule the streets. Any victim who refuses to identify their assailant is complicit in the crime.

    Per report the shooting happened at Adams Blvd. not Adams Street. My son (ECU student) lived in an apartment on Adams Blvd. 3 years ago & was so glad that he moved away. Too much riff-raff, drugs, loud music, etc. to deal with.

    what does Section 8 have to do with the shooting. No matter where crimes happen, a cime is a cime.
