    I hereby grant authority to WakeMed to take my tax dollars and use them to pay for patching up corner boys who shoot each other in disputes over who gets to sell crack on Bragg St.

    I'm surprised to see this made news. It is sad that these two men were shot whatever the circumstances were. However the reality is that there are shootings in that area of Raleigh almost daily and it never gets reported. I wonder what made this situations newsworthy. Sad but true.

    hhmm, must be trying to catch up with Durhams stats. I am surprised the media hasn't slipped and said this was in Durham, just to beef up the numbers of shootings in Durham.

    Wouldn't the two shot have information?
