Suspects Identified in Clinton Drive-By

Posted February 21, 2008

— Clinton Police have identified two people they believe were in the car when a drive-by shooting injured Marcus London at  the More Cut Barbershop Feb. 16.

London was struck in the head while he sat in a barber chair inside the shop. He remains at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. His condition has upgraded from critical to serious, Clinton Police Chief Mike Brim said Thursday. Other shots were fired at the barbershop, but no one else was injured.

Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Michael Lee Wright Jr., 20, of 22 Mint Hill Ln. in Clinton on charges of discharging a weapon into an occupied property, possession of a firearm by felon, attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

They are also seeking Terry Oats, who they believe was a passenger in the car at the time of the shooting.

    I guess these young black guys like to see what prison is all about. Ten years is a start and see how well they like being there then. Once they start living in the prison system, they will not be happy. Yes, look again at the face, its a boy. :) He needs a serious haircut like his friend.
