    vitim has been identified. he was from graham.
    seems like they knew each other. Wonder why he got shot?

    i stand corrected. The city limits stop at the Citgo store adjoining that one.

    Im from hillsborough and that is not a city limits sign. that sign is a little further south than that. but that gas station is on the outside of a very rough part of town. This was probably a robbery or drug deal gone bad. Also, its nowhere near 85 but there are signs around it directing drivers to it.

    "and that store is in the city limits so why are not the Hillsborough Police involved?" - Another Fact Checker

    No, its not in the city limits. Hence, the big green "City Limits" sign just south of the store....

    and that store is in the city limits so why are not the Hillsborough Police involved?

    It happened at the BP on the Northside. We drove by as the police were putting up the yellow tape.

    That picture is of the gas station at 86 and 70 which is on the north side of Hillsborough. I-85 runs on the south side of Hillsborough.
    So did the shooting take place at the gas station in the photograph, or did it take place near I-85?
