Asheville: The first time Joe Killian wrote about gangs in Greensboro, I was surprised by how many there were. I’m still surprised, and I suspect readers of the Citizen-Times are, too. 65 different gangs and 1,100 gang members in the Asheville area, police say. (I can’t find the story on the website. Here is a link to the paper’s front page.)
Winston-Salem: Related, a random gunshot from a moving vehicle killed a 5-year-old boy. Police told the Journal that they didn’t know if it was gang-related, but it sounds gang-related.
