    If it was related to drugs; the drugs and the killers may have illegally came from the southern border which our government has no intention of closing. Someone needs to sue the federal government. The federal homeland security secretary, the federal labor secretary and Tom Perez whom is up for the federal assistant attorney general involved with civil rights, all of these people believe in open borders and amnesty. Thank you OBAMA!

    I live in Durham. I just can't imagine there would be murders
    in other cities in N.C. To hear from other Goloers, you would believe that guns, crime, drugs, etc. were located only in Durham. I'm so relieved.

    A shooting in Chapel Hill? How can that possibly be? I just don't understand it, Chapel Hill is a gun-free utopia, isn't it?

    Sounds like Chapel Hill has a brewing problem on their hands. Two murders, just a couple of days apart, in the same area. Clamp down on this before this gets out of hand!
