    ...It looks like Garner is starting to get its share of spillover crime from South Raleigh.

    wake1794...

    REALLY!!! Crime is crime and Garner is no stranger to crime. Is it because an incident involves "someone" that the crime must be related to South Raleigh? Look at the map of crime not remotely close to areas of Raleigh where crime is a problem. You like most don't understand the diversity South Raleigh. There are various income levels, professions, and many single family-MORTGAGE bearing subdivisions. I think because of the greater concentration of minorities and proverty level in city and South Raleigh being tied to downtown outward many are mislead. but if it is 20% below proverty line then 80% must be above...stop the generalization and use common sense! Drive around and visit for more than just a traffic annoying concert-

    That's two shootings on Benson Road in Garner within a week.

    The first was a road rage incident that could have occurred

    anywhere but this one wasn't. A woman was also shot dead

    in her apartment complex in Garner a couple of weeks ago.

    It looks like Garner is starting to get its share of spillover

    crime from South Raleigh.
