Fayetteville shootings leave two injured

Posted March 20, 2012

— Two men were injured in separate shootings in Fayetteville about an hour apart Monday evening, police said.

First, Calvin Johnson, 29, was wounded in a drive-by shooting in the 7800 block of Adrian Drive shortly before 8 p.m., police said.

He and two friends were standing in a driveway when someone in a silver sedan opened fire, police said. Bullets struck Johnson, a house and a car. He was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Police said the car might have been a 2008 Nissan Altima.

About an hour later, Bryce Lee was shot while walking to his car in the 1900 block of Ireland Drive shortly before 9 p.m., police said. He was also treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

The shootings occurred about 9 miles away from each other.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call Fayetteville police at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that solve crimes.

It was the second time in two days that two shootings occurred within an hour of each other in Fayetteville.

On Sunday, Kevin Moseby, 28, was shot to death at his apartment on Duck Court shortly before 3 a.m., and less than an hour later, Stephen Bruno, 22, was gunned down in the parking lot of Club Ciroc, 6323 Raeford Road. Suspects have been arrested in both cases.

    And people get offended when you refer to the place as 'Fayettenam'! I was born and raised in Fayetteville, in the New Ponderosa subdivision. I remember when Yadkin Road was two lanes, and Dad telling my siblings and I to 'Keep your head and eyes to the front' when we drove down Hay street past the Korean Lounge, Ricks Lounge, and the Cellar.

    Now it seems with the so-called revitalization of downtown, the city has pushed the cesspool of trouble makers and despots furhter into an area that once was quiet and filled with disciplined, hard working soldiers and blue collar families. Personally, I think the above revitalization, combined with the 'dumbing down' of Army enlistment requirements, is causing the slow and inevitable decay of Fayetteville. And to the xenophobes who still exist from when I was a kid and hide behind false online identities, you cant just blame this foolishness on one particular demographic either. Don't you dare.

    If you want to consider these crimes as a possible pattern, then you have to at least consider them a gang anitiation as well. Not sure if I spelled anitiation because i'm under the influence of NyQuil.

    and people think Durham is bad...wishing the courts would put away people that are released with a slap on the wrist for crimes that are serious in nature.

    This place is full of criminals...we continue to set them free after short, brief trips to jail and they continue their criminal behavior. Arm yourselfs!
