    I used to live in Henderson and I pulled duty in Iraq. I don't know which one prepared me for the other but I felt the same in both places.

    Wow, it really takes a lot of nerve to shoot near a courthouse. Sounds like they have a description of the cars, but not the people driving them. That is a huge clue!

    This isn't news, it's normal in Henghanistan. Wasn't someone just shot outside of the courthouse a month or so ago?

    Most likely registered Democrats.

    More than likely shooting at each other. Happened in Person County years ago.

    Welcome to summer vacation. When you have 10's of thousands of students across North Carolina being out of school, the cops will be quite busy trying to keep up with them.
