    Shooting breaks out – at anti-violence vigil


    Charlotte’s recent spate of violence took a new twist Thursday night when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil in the city’s Villa Heights neighborhood.

    Four people were injured, but police say none of the victims’ injuries is considered life-threatening. No arrests have been announced.....more......

    Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the vigil, calling attention to last Thursday’s death of Javon Booker, who police say was fatally shot when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store on Tom Hunter Road in north Charlotte. The service took place in the 2500 block of Pinckney Avenue, a block south of Matheson Avenue.

    Maybe they need to hold a vigil to stop convenience store robberies!

    Hannah says her clerk did what he had to do when he shot and killed Javon Booker Thursday night. Hannah says Booker demanded money and hit the clerk in the head with a gun.

    "He could have been shot. He could have been laying dead on the floor and in a morgue," said Hannah.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't consider this man murdered. jmo

    One of the store's owners Lamia Hanna described what she saw on the surveillance camera. "It showed the guy jumped [over the counter]. He had a gun. He was all covered up. We didn't see his face and he hit the clerk twice. The clerk had to defend himself," Hanna said.

    Between the violence at the anti violence rally to the poor kitten thrown out of the car during an animal rights rally, my city is looking really bad right now. Add that to the string of murders that prompted the CMPD to address the media and its downright embarrassing.
