Four shot at Fuquay-Varina apartment complex

Posted March 6, 2013

— Fuquay-Varina police are investigating a shooting that injured four people Tuesday night.

Authorities were called to the Bay Tree Apartments, at 113 Bay Tree St., around 9:50 p.m., where they found four victims, who were treated at local hospitals.

Susan Weis, a public information officer for the Town of Fuquay-Varina, said that investigators have spoken to several of the victims but that there has been little cooperation.

She could not provide further details of the shooting or information about a possible suspect.

The victims' conditions are unknown, Weis said.

Anyone with information that could help investigators is asked contact the Fuquay-Varina Police Department at 919-552-3191.

    To all of the commenters that are ready to write off this crime, please remember that there are honest and in many cases, hardworking people who live in Section 8 housing. They don't deserve to have their neighborhoods shot up just becase they are poor.

    I know they are using their 5th amendment right for protection against self incrimination, but in this instance they are incriminating themselves by NOT saying anything.

    That "complex" is right near our Church. Not a safe place at all, and see police cars there about everytime I pass by. I feel bad for the little kids who have to live there.

    I'm certain the gun just went off by itself and started shooting those poor folks.

    I live about a mile from those apartments - my family and I were sitting in our living room and heard 15-20 shots fired around 9:45 PM. I have lived in Fuquay most of my life and it's not unusual to hear guns in the distance, especially during hunting season. But this is different and unfortunate. I hope the Fuquay PD get to the bottom of it...

    Talked to the Mayor - told him it might be time to no longer worry about looking like Cary and start worrying about how big a bulldozer is needed to get rid of those apartments.

    Just to make a point - no town is required to have section 8 housing. The only reason why towns want it is federal money - no other reason.

    "said the victims are not cooperating with the investigation."

    Gee, what a surprise!!!! NOT

    Yep, there have been ongoing problems in this apartment complex for decades. It probably tops the list of the few places in Fuquay that I would really be nervous to walk through at night.

    @PuckyDuck...pretty much!!!

    Sad story. That small area near historic downtown is pretty ghetto and has some section 8 housing. Luckily, the real estate market in Fuquay is steadily growing with new development that will eventually drive out undesirables, like the ones involved in this event. It is becoming a much more family friendly town.
