Posted September 27, 2011

— Cumberland County authorities said Tuesday that they have issued warrants for the arrest of a Fayetteville man in connection with a May shooting that crippled another man.

Audwin Pierre Lindsay Jr., 24, of 7878 Barfield Drive, is charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

A May 28 shooting left Carlos Manuel Sanchez a quadriplegic, authorities said.

Witnesses said Sanchez, 30, and another man were arguing in the 5600 block of Summerwind Drive when the other man pulled out a gun and opened fire, authorities said.

Lindsay is described as black, 5 feet 9 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes. He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached, authorities said.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500 or the office's tip line at 910-484-TIPS (8477).

    Would that attraction be similar to that of when children are preyed on by the "same people"? That kind of attraction?

    Same storyline, same people....This is the same line I've used over and over again that has become almost generic, if you will, and can just about be attached to every story of this nature that appears in the news every other day. If these people could just use all that negative energy to do something positive with their lives...maybe they would see that their really are other alternatives to living a life free of violence.
