    I cant believe some of the comments being made on here! This young man leaves behind parents, siblings, and a baby. Whether he is legal or not shouldnt be an issue! Which, by the way, he was born and raised here! I'm not saying that illegal immigration is not an issue but know the facts before you go posting stupid inconsiderate comments because he is just as much an American citizen as you are!

    Uhhhhh.....I don't think that was the reason.....just a hunch.

    Go figure-it's Vance County. Vance Co. is one of the roughest counties in the state. High unemployment-marginal education levels.

    Sounds like a drug deal gone bad, or something went bad.

    There's trouble, right here in River City. That starts with T and that rhymes with P and that stands for POOL.

    Justmy2cents - Now isn't that a true statement? Shocker something like this would happen at a place with such a name, yeah right. I have always prefered meximart over walmart. I'll pay the extra $1 and shop at Target all day long.

    Rockermom, it's behind the old Tip Top restaurant. Years ago it was called the Square Deal pool room, this is not the first time someone has died there.

    LMBO at the name of the place. Guess they just wanted it to be clear to others who may wonder. Walmart should follow suit....

    Outlaw, I'm trying to figure out where this place is. Is it behind the old Tip Top or down Norlina Road toward Middleburg?
