USA –-(Ammoland.com)- WNCN-TV 7 reports in Durham, North Carolina last week (9/14/2016) Durham police responded to a report of a shooting just before 1 in the morning in the 800 block of East Woodcroft Parkway at an apartment complex.

They found a local 16 year old wearing a mask, had attempted to force entry into an occupied apartment.

The teenager and the resident exchanged gunfire. The resident called 911 in the frantic moments after the incident and told the operator he had been shot in the leg, saying “I shot the suspect when he tried to enter my house.”

The resident thought the intruder had kidnapped his girlfriend but she was later found hiding outside. (Early reports of this incident call it a kidnapping.) The resident was hit in the leg and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The deceased teenager was a student at Hillside High School in Durham. The school’s principal told reporters he was a “great kid” and called his death a “loss to our school.” Word about the death spread quickly via social media and the school worked quickly to provide counselors to assist the grieving students.

One student commented, “I saw it on Instagram saying rest in peace, he was really cool, real funny guy. Cool to be around, you know?”

A neighbor commented “Nothing really happens over here. It’s always quiet. This is a total surprise to me.” He said this is the first incident that has occurred there since he moved in.

No charges have been filed as of this report and the investigation is ongoing.

Comments:

A “great kid”, a “loss to the school”. Grief counselors called in for other school students’ well being. “He was really cool, real funny guy. Cool to be around”, what?

Or a 1 a.m. attack by a masked and armed intruder who tried to kill the resident, really, who is this kid?

There are usually two sides to every shooting but this may be a record setter for the distance between those sides. I suspect this intruder was the ex-boyfriend of the girl in the resident’s house, just a guess.

I can hardly wait for the investigators to sort this one out.

So where are the Black Lives Matter mouth-pieces when it’s black on black or black on another race? Don’t black lives matter all the time? Work on yourselves first, then you can work on others. The truth is ALL Lives Matter. Get over it.

“Don’t black lives matter all the time?”
No, they only matter when the black file is that of a violent thug who gets shot by a cop while committing a crime.

isn’t it comforting to realise that this housebreaker’s procuring of his weapon was, of course, (he being the law abiding chap he is……) performed in a manner that upholds ALL the (stuid) laws pertaining to firearms transfers, INCLUDING a background check, as that requriement INSURES no one gets their hands on a gun that should not….. Okay, sarc off… one more case proving how STUPID all those “common sense gun safety laws” are. Homeowner likely did lawfully obtain his handgun…. perp certainly did not. He can’t buy a handgun from an FFL till he’s 21. Can’t possess one till he’s… Read more »

Harsh reality for the human race that answers both sides of the incident. Even people that are “generally viewed by their peers as descent people” can make absolutely terrible mistakes. The younger the person, the worse the decisions that they make. Additionally, a person that is “generally a descent person” does not mean that they are not living a secret life. It just means that it took longer for them to get caught doing it. Some poor decisions can’t be undone. But the situation still remains their fault for the decision they made. If the young man in question had… Read more »

This story has to be wrong. Black people never does anything wrong. If you don’t believe me, just axe them. They will tell you the truth every time.

“Great kid” is ghetto speak for”Thug, perfecting his craft”. “He was just starting to get his life together” is code for he was a piece of excrement. “He was thinking about going to college” is code for he hasn’t got what it takes to succeed.

Nice! How about “if I had a son…” code for we found a picture that makes him/her look civilized instead,” as well as “common sense” & “reasonable” code for disarm the victim, they’re easier to blame.

16 yr old…ex-girlfriend with another guy…hormones raging….Too bad. NOTHING excuses the armed and masked thuggery. Just can understand the reason – because NO ONE ever taught him personal responsibility and control. If they had, this would not have happened.

A “nuther” BLM’er thought he could get away with this, thinking the ” Grand POTUSPOS” would protect him on his quest for further GREATNESS. Didn’t work did it!

I wonder what the standards are that this principle uses to call this kid “great” and how many other “great” students there are at this school.

This story makes me wonder what standards this principle uses that labels this kid as great and how many more “great” kids are at this school.

He was obviously NOT a “great kid.” He was a murderous thug. He got what he deserved. Sad but true.

And another armed and dangerous honor roll student bites the dust. How typical of all the pillars of our community, who lay down their lives in the perpetration of a felony.
