BREAKING: Shooting at North Carolina High School, One Wounded


The AP is reporting that there was an incident at Carver High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina this afternoon around 2:30 PM Eastern. Details are still sketchy, but initial reports indicate that the shooting took place as students were re-entering the school after a scheduled fire drill. At least one person was reportedly wounded in the neck and shoulder, but the injuries are described as not “life threatening.” One person was taken into custody. More as the story develops.

    This sketchy report would seem to suggest the shooter knew about the fire drill, and used that as a way to get into the school relatively unobserved….

    Early reports said the weapon was a Korean War era M-1 Garand. Eric Holder was seen steepling his fingers and looking smug.

      Does anyone really need an eight-round clip? Buy a shotgun!

      1. avatar Emfourty Gasmask says:

        but i have a 12 round ‘clip’ for my shotgun 🙁

          Homer: What are you gonna do, release the dogs, or the bees, or the dogs with bees in their mouths so when they bark they shoot bees at you. Go ahead do your worst. Mr Burns: My worst eh. Smithers release the robotic Richard Simmons. Homer: Ahhhhhhh.

    I would like to get in with my bet that this is gang and/or crime related, and not a “mass shooter” scenario, before any more “news” breaks…

    1. avatar Nick Leghorn says:

      That’s my bet as well.

    2. avatar Peirsonb says:

      Can I take the over and say the guns involved weren’t legally obtained?

      1. avatar Jason says:

        And I bet the teen had a history of getting in trouble, but nobody saw this coming.

        Also, “he was a good boy who ain’t never hurt nobody”.

        1. avatar Jus Bill says:

          …despite his brushes with the law. He just went off his meds.

    3. avatar Jon says:

      From what I’ve gathered at 10:30 MST, you are correct.

  4. avatar Fred says:

    Is it too early to start taking bets over which medications the “suspect” didn’t take today, the number of clear indicators this action would happen, or who actually owns the gun?

    On second thought it probably was gang related:

  5. avatar Chas says:

    If you make it a gun free zone, they will come….

    1. avatar Dave's not here man... says:

      Damnit man!… now I need a new keyboard (ish… I happened to have a spare).

  6. avatar Model 31 says:

    I wouldn’t judge how they run things over in Winston-Salem, but here in Texas, we have laws against just this sort of thing and that is why it didn’t happen here.

  7. avatar The last Marine out says:

    Keep your kids alive , get them out of this Marxism mess called public education, All these kids get is dumbed down.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      I know some of those kids. Dumbing them down is an intellectual impossibility.

  8. avatar sightpicture says:

    IIRC, the Winston Salem area is pretty ghetto

    1. avatar Gyufygy says:

      That’s the general rep I’ve picked up.

    2. avatar Matt in NC says:

      You are correct. Winston-Salem is about an hour from me. Lots of crime and has a lot of gang activity. It is also one of the most liberal parts of the state. Who would have thought?

  9. avatar TC says:

    We need to ban fire drills.

    1. avatar Peirsonb says:

      Oddly enough, that would make more sense than more gun laws….which isn’t saying much…..

  10. avatar Ralph says:

    Ya can’t make this sh1t up. CBSNews wrote: “Police said it is not clear whether the students involved were friends . . .”

    I don’t know about you guys, but when I shoot my friends, it’s not in the neck.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Well, Ralph, you’re not very interesting then, are you?

      1. avatar Ralph says:


    2. avatar blehtastic says:

      A friend of mine kind of wants me to taze him.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Don’t taze him, bro.

      2. avatar jwm says:

        Is that before or after the handcuffs and the feathers?

        1. avatar rosignol says:

          Just so long as you don’t use the entire chicken…

  11. avatar miserylovescompany says:

    I normally try to avoid speculation, sarcastic or otherwise, but the fact of the matter is that kids don’t live in a vacuum, crazy, sane, spoiled, or what have you.

    It’s well known that the more the media harps on guns, shootings, gun control, etc – the more nuts come out of the woodwork. Which is, of course, precisely what the news vultures are hoping for. I personally think that we don’t need to hang some of our politicians so much as we need to hang some certain traitors in the MSM. And quickly, without mercy.

    PS: No I’m not about to apologize for anything I said.

    1. avatar Steve D. says:

      Ban rope!

  12. avatar Janitor says:

    Why don’t we talk about real issues like Miley Cyrus twirking?

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      Because some of us might not like vomiting.

      1. avatar Rich Grise says:

        Does she barf too? I guess there are some pervs who find that sexy.

  13. avatar B says:

    You can pretty much tell whether a shooting is gang or psycho related by the name of the school. Carver, King, Jackson, Marshall? Probably gang related. Columbine, Newton? Psychos.

  14. avatar Mark N. says:

    By the way, that was a link to a Reuters article, not AP. Lawsuit fi=or false attribution in 3, 2, 1…

  15. avatar Chip says:


    Allow me to be Captain Obvious for just a moment….

    The local media link above indicates students, shooter, injury not life threatening and 700 students.

    The Reuters Link include some of that, but then adds this little helpful nugget of info…. “The shooting occurred more than a week after a 20-year-old man opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle in a suburban Atlanta elementary school. The gunman was arrested, and there were no injuries in that incident.”

    (cue Captain Obvious theme song please…..)

    Reuters News Service would appear to be biased against firearms.

    1. avatar Bob says:

      Yep. Very obvious.

      This probably was not a spree killing, but they’re going to make it feel like one. Now when you think of this one, you will think of the one in Atlanta also, and this one will feel like a spree killing.

  16. avatar Cubby123 says:

    Gee,another gun free zone with no armed protection for kids,HMMM this sounds familiar,now let’s see where has that happened before? I know,let’s get MOM’S DEMAND ACTION to post “MOM” guards at all the schools and they can BORE the shooters to death with talk!
