Officers were called to the 1100 block of Alpha Drive around 12:30 a.m., where they found the man, whose identity had not been released, shot to death.

Authorities said it appears the shooting was the result of a fight and was not random and that a suspect has been taken into police custody.

    Well CUaround....The story states this was apparently the result of an argument or fight. To me, that spells drug deal gone wrong. I mean, who else needs to kill anyone over a simple disagreement? I have "fights" with friends, more like disagreements, but never has it even come close to being a gun battle. Just saying. I am not going to lose one second's sleep tonight.

    I'm truly going to miss my friend. I am praying for your family!

    I hope that nothing ever happens to any of your friends or family that make the headlines regardless of where they live (thats for you dwr1964 and Obamacare for life)!

    Obamacare, I know that was sarcastic and I completely agree. A real news headline would read, "Not one person killed in Feyetteville today". Of course we all know that will never happen.
