Three Shot At Wake County Food Lion, Police Searching For Gunman

Lawmen in Wake county are searching for the man who shot three people at a Food Lion.

Wendell police are looking for 21-year-old Tariq Taylor. They say a daylong dispute between Taylor and his partner prompted the shooting.

Eight shots were fired at the Food Lion, injuring Taylor's partner and two women, who are being considered as innocent bystanders.

All three victims were taken to Wake Med Hospital. The man injured is in serious condition, while the women are recovering from non-life-threatening injuries.

    I've never heard of an instance of a concealed carry permit holder committing a crime. I believe most of us permit holders carry in the hopes of having half a chance to defend ourselves from the likes of Mr. Tariq Taylor.

    all of these shootings should be place squarely upon the shoulders of the great G.O.P. an it's gun loobying nuts the NRA for guns are just plainly to easy to get an with all of the concealed carry permits these days the people are becoming scared to death an are going just plainly gun nuts. there need to be a complete stop put to the easy acess to guns in this country for just anybody an no i am not against the second admendent to the us constitution i am myself a gun owner. but there need to be some common sense place on the gun owner ship in this country. it needs to be regulated so as to protect the citizen of this satet an this country . just to manny incident of this nature happening now a days thank you

      That's right..just take away the law abidding citizens' rights to protect themselves while the criminals will still have access to illegal guns. If you don't want to carry-then don't but don't infringe on my right to carry one.

      Blame this on the GOP? I can understand blaming AIDS on the Democrats but this is really a stretch. Blame the constitution. Blame the idiots shooting people over petty disputes. But never blame a Christian organization like the GOP....after all...the Dems support abortion so this is their way of terminating the birth certificates of those who should have died falling off bikes without helmets on!!!

      Regulated? Every time some new proposal is even brought up, such as putting serial numbers on ammunition it creates a wave of buying at the gun stores. You know what a wave is right? Comes up and pulls everything back. When was the last time you bought a gun and had to go through the checks? Go get a pistol permit and then a CCW permit and tell me there's not enough regulation.

    America and its once great society are falling apart at an alarming speed. Things are going to get much, much worse IF and I mean IF they EVER get better. Sad and true.

      Amen. You can't even go grocery shopping anymore without a weapon. It seems like the closer we get to Christmas the worse news gets. America is on its way to becoming a third world country and most people are just contributing to her downfall. Very sad.

    Now...for all you central North Carolina folks that keep talking junk about Eastern North Carolina crime, close your mouth for once because crime is everywhere! Including your own home town. If you are wathing WITN news, you probably see alot about Greenville because WITN is one of the news channels for Eastern NC. I bet if Greenville watched a Central NC news channel, we would see a lot of crime regarding your area.

      Agreed, parts of Raleigh, most of Durham, Fayetteville, Lumberton are all cesspools, I have worked in them all so I had to know where to and not to go at certain times of day....However Greenville and Kinston serve as cesspool role models
  • by Partner? on Dec 8, 2011 at 06:05 AM
    Was this a business partner... or a sexual partner? Maybe a partner in crime? ...and the report says the shots were fired at the Food Lion, yet people were hit? I guess that coins the phrase, "He couldn't hit the broadside of a Food Lion" ...lol

    "...eight shots were fired..." Boy, he was really mad. He must have terrible aim to injure TWO bystanders in the process. Sounds like he intended to KILL that 'partner'.

      Firing a gun at someone constitutes intent to kill anyway, so actually hitting them is a moot point.
