In Fayetteville, police have shot and captured the suspect in a triple homicide. He ran from the cops and then tried to shoot at them. They shot him and now he’s charged with the murders. The murders don’t appear to be a home invasion/robbery. They appear to be personal.
(Suspect) knew at least one of the five people he is accused of shooting or stabbing inside a home off Ramsey Street on Saturday, authorities said today.
Investigators also have determined that (Suspect) was not trying to break into the residence at 288 Ingram St. where city police found two people dead and three injured.
“At this point, detectives have determined that (Suspect) was familiar with the residence and familiar with at least one of the occupants,” Fayetteville police said in a release issued this morning.
So the gun grabbers are correct, at least on this point. Victims and killers tend to know each other.
Neither of the other two murder victims appear to have convictions here in North Carolina.
The method seems particularly horrendous
“Based on information that detectives have collected so far, it appears the (Suspect) came to the residence, confronted and killed one or more of the occupants,” the release said. “He then killed or assaulted the other victims as they came to the residence.”
The Charlotte Observer adds this gruesome detail.
(Victim 1) and (Victim 2) were found dead at the scene, while (Victim 3) died after being taken to the hospital.
Two other people were seriously wounded and are still being treated for their injuries, Womble said.
So this felon, who just got out of prison in July after being in prison since 1987 got a gun and a knife and murdered three people and apparently tried to murder two more. Of the 5 victims, 3 had criminal records.
Can anyone explain to me how “just one more law” would have prevented this?
The gun grabbers like to tout the statistic that X percentage of victims know their killers. They try to pretend that this means that the victims are murdered by their own families. They try to convince you that you should be terrified of your family members, friends, and neighbors who have guns. They fail to point out to you that felons also have family, friends, and neighbors.
Lying by omission is still lying.
