Posted December 17, 2012

— The Wake County Sheriff's Office arrested two men Monday in connection with a shooting that injured a man early Monday.

Deputies were called to a home at 5725 Old Smithfield Road, near Apex, shortly before 5:30 a.m. where they found Dynomite Dwight Gooch, 23, shot in the chest.

He was taken to WakeMed, where he was listed in stable condition Monday afternoon.

    This area is called Feltonville. It has always been considered as part of Holly Springs but is actually outside the town limits of both Holly Springs and Apex. Pants on the ground and God Bless America.

    They are refering to the POSTAL address and not the physical location. I live in the county, have a CARY address, and a APEX phone number. CARY is 25' from a side property line and APEX is 25' from the front property line. Don't know where is it?, look at the map WRAL provides.

    Never been there. Looked it up on Google street view. One thing I will disagree with. There is a big difference between this and a third world country. Not even the same ballpark.

    I know I commented because I would say Holly Springs to describe this area more so than I would Apex. kikinc

    Same here. Just like there are parts of Apex that I consider Cary and vice versa.
