    this happened right behind my house. this isnt the first time this has happened regardless of whether or not it was HIS first time in trouble. Mase isnt going to help. I suggest you find somewhere else to walk your dog. As for the real story, the only two people who will know will be those two and im sure we won't be hearing it. It's a shame! This isn't "technically" in knightdale, but really it is. Our addresses are knightdale and we're not but 2 miles at most from kohls and target.
    Attending church and praying isnt going to stop someone from shooting you. Sorry! It's very sad.
    But, from what we hear from our local officers... the man who was shot was not at fault at all and had not instigated any situation. As for the man who committed the shooting, apparently he isn't of "sound mind". But who knows, that's an easy excuse!

    This is very sad I went to school with him and he was a very good friend of mine. He was a very cool guy that did nothing wrong to anyone. R.I.P James you will be missed but not forgotten!

    Why is there so much hostility in these blogs for this article? some are taking this very personally, I understand the person claiming to be the suspects sister having an emotional attachment, but not the others.

    great-nice to know a "suspected" murderer lived less than a mile away from my house.

    He was not interested in you. So move on.

    More than likely it was other nothing. Now one is dead and the other facing life in prison. Today, men and women have forgotten a simple fist fight. At least no one will be killed.

    This didn't happen within Knightdale town limits, it happened in the county.... So Knightdale still has 1 homicide..... And still unsolved....
