New information is emerging about the man killed in a fatal shooting in Wayne County Saturday.

Their investigation showed Forbes had gone to a residence on Bryan Boulevard in Goldsboro where he got into a confrontation with another person. A gunshot was heard and the victim then ran back to the vehicle he had arrived in and said he had been shot.

A driver started to take the victim to the hospital and stopped at the business for assistance where the victim died.

    Notonwelfare- Ur comment ( As far as food stamps are concerned, there are generally more whites coming into DSS for assistance than blacks here….) U cannot be talkin bout Wayne County!! All people of all races need help sometime and there is absolutely nothing wrong with people receiving TEMPORARY assistance when falling on hard times.. Numerous senseless murders in our small community in just a few weeks, these KIDS have no business out all hours of the night it only brings problems and obviously is dangerous. Just a few nights ago about 10 pm I passed a couple kids between the ages of 10-14 riding their bikes down the rd in Dudley…. absolutely NO reason why these youngins should be running da dangerous streets like that. PARENTS TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY N START RAISING UR KIDS!!! My prayers r with the loved ones of all these kids gone way to soon.

    Sadly no issues will be solved until people can rationally focus on effective solutions as opposed to emotional critiques. Generalizing about entire groups is just ignorant, the character of individuals transcends race. Actions to correct these societal woes starts with each and every one of us. Unless we come together to understand the problems beyond the mere surface than it’s pointless to get angry.

    Books such as “A Framework for understanding poverty” would open some minds. Jesus was truthful but compassionate!

    It doesn’t matter if killed by a black or white . Tell the truth. Should have been home at 12:30am and not breaking into someone else home to take what was rightfully theirs.

    Over and over I keep hearing “black lives matter” and they do but most of the time wham an arrest is made in a murder case, the person who has done the shooting is black. Who gives anyone the right to take someone else’s life. There is no regard for life and s bullet has no name but I don’t blame a bullet. I blame the insensitive person who pulled the trigger. Everyday time I hear a siren I start praying. But I do wish that people would stop this senseless and stupid shootings. I don’t feel sorry for the killer but I feel for the family if there one. None of the shooters might not ever read this but just in case you are stop this foolishness. What can we as Goldsboro citizens do? These folks are making our town seem bad and it’s not the town. It’s some of the people. I went for a walk a few months ago and as I was almost home, the lady I was walking with said why are those kids out and it almost dark. It starts at home and if we all take the initiative to know where our children are, I think Goldsboro would be a much safer place. Not sure what I can do other than pray and at this point it’s the best thing I can do. The prayer of the righteous availed much.

    Concerned citizen claims the failure of the black community is because they live in less fortunate areas. I call BS on this. You only get as far in life as you are willing to work for. These less fortunate communities stay that way because they are the gib-me-dats. Always have their hands out for “free” stuff, which isn’t free because joe blow taxpayer pays for it (and he’s really getting tired of it). By the time you are 13/14, you know how babies are made & how babies are prevented. If you are unwilling or unable to properly care for & raise these children, then don’t have them. I am SICK of having MY take home income reduced to pay for these parasites. There is plenty of white trash doing this, with a whole lot of mexican thrown in too (you know, diversity and all…).
    Then you got paralegal that wants to throw more money into education. Lack of money does not prevent anyone from learning. Parents (as in plural, “parents”) need to teach their children that getting an education is one of the many steps to remove ones self from less fortunate circumstances/poverty. I walked to school, classrooms had small space heaters that we all shared, windows that opened up either to let the breeze in or to let the hot air out. Lunch was very basic. You either ate it, went hungry, or ate the pb&j brown bag lunch that mom fixed for you. Our parents taught us to respect. You would have NEVER talked back to a teacher, nor EVER considered raising your hand to one.
    WTF is wrong with a parent/s that will NOT teach their children about respecting others & personal responsibility.
    If & when this happens, then I’ll start caring. Sad but true. Flame away…

    I would have you to know Mr Kilaboots, that just because horrible things happen to people it by no means is an indication that they are on welfare or any kind of public assistance. I just think that you are a mean coward that hides in the dark, or maybe even in plain sight.

    I feel the Justice system is failing the black community that lives in the less fortunate areas. I feel they just don’t care Black on Black Crime better for them this is why Some Many People are getting Killed .If they kill off each other they don’t have to make an arrested and they get right back out.This crime out of control for such a small town

      How can you say that the Justice System is failing black lives? Law Enforcement in Wayne County would prevent these murders, if they knew they were going to happen. I feel like black people are failing black people. A white cop, in a different state, kills what media portrays as an unarmed black male, and 11 cops lose their lives, cars are burned, protest ensue, etc…. But 3 black teenagers have been killed within a month and you don’t blame each other, you blame the Justice System. Get a clue… everytime there’s a murder, these same cops that most people hate, go out and try to find witnesses, clues, anything they can to put these murderers away and it’s the common, “I didn’t see anything, didn’t hear anything.” Until people stand up for themselves, the communities they live in, and each other, it’s going to continue to be like the wild, wild, west out there because the individuals that it effects (those that live around the areas) the most, don’t care enough to speak up.

      So, it’s the justice systems job to tell people how to live?
      Last time I checked, it is to enforce laws.
      Maybe the black community should take a good long look at itself.
      Instead of placing the blame everywhere except on the source of the problem, the problem will never be fixed. There is indeed a problem, but due to political correctness, it cannot be addressed.

    Kailboots this is the smartest thing I’ve ever heard you say about the black race and as a black person I commend that comment. I hope more comments like this spread from your mind to your actions and team with other leaders to promote the value of understanding and transition to a truly free American way of living

    2 murders in 2 days and 4 for the month..Who built this chicken coop? Liberal leaders and their welfare policies..Black lives matter to them as long as they’re getting that almighty Gov.$..I wish the black population in this country would wise up and see they’re being played by the liberal left..What have they done for you as a whole that has made your lives better? Food stamps,public housing,welfare? All to keep you suppressed and dependent on them..and in their positions..Anything for your vote to stay in power..Wise up people..

      No. How about put more money into educating instead of the prison system….
      black lives matter just like breast cancer awareness. This system has been setup WAYYYYYYY before anything present. Since the constitution was written that didn’t include the black man at all.

        Are you talking about slaves? The ones that were bought in Africa, from Africans? The ones who were sold off by their own people? This will never get posted, due to political correctness and the media only giving one view of everthing.
        Want to fix the problem, go to the source. You want hard working taxpayers to increase spending on a problem that the black community fails to acknowledge exist? Everyone that lives outside the “ghetto” can see crystal clear what is going on, and how ridiculously easy of a fix this would be.
        “Black community, stop killing each other”
        “Black community, take responsibility and tackle this problem at the source, stop looking for outside help for everything from housing, snap, telephone service, all the way down to…..how do we stop killing each other, how do you not grow up a gang banger, why can’t we get any help….with….making good life choices.”

        First of all, the education system is free. K-12. If you try hard, put forth the effort, college is free via scholarship or grant.
        But, being a straight “A” student and going to duke isn’t cool in the black community. Once this person succeeds and moves into a safe upper class neighborhood, they are called sellouts. The black community shuns success and ostracizes those who do succeed.

        How can you ever get ahead when your own community wants you to fail.

          I agree completely. I commented the same thing pretty much in a black friend of mines page and was told that my comment made no sense so no they will never get it and they will always blame others for their own problems and always bringing each other down. They are their own down fall!!

      In responce to kialboots…I get sick and tired of non African American people generalizing our ethnic background. I’ve NEVER received ANY public assistance, the one time I DID need it.All blacks are neither suppressed, nor dependent on the government. The government doesn’t have a dang thing to do with these fools killing one another. Its they way they are raised and the environment they live in. How can the government intervene in that? Guns are going to ALWAYS be available illegally…Can the government stop that? As far as food stamps are concerned, there are generally more whites coming into DSS for assistance than blacks here…. Guess Obama is the cause for that too. The thing that gets me is, this crap been going on forever… Its just now becoming relavent because of Obama… The whole world going straight to hell if that racist, ignorant, plagiarizing, fake, non-informed, arrogant Trump gets into the Oval office! And he’s taking his puppets down right along with everyone else. #ALLLIVESMATTER

        When you do ratios, 3 to 1 for blacks and 10 to 1 for whites.

        So yeah, more white people on assistance. 33% black as opposed to 10% white.

        racist – because he wants to keep a group of people out of this country who want us dead. remember, we are the infidel. Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah”
        racist – because he wants the immigration laws enforced.
        racist – because his companies employ diverse backgrounds.
        ignorant – not sure about this one. he is one of the richest men in the world. you don’t get that way by being ignorant. you get that way by being smart.
        plagairizing – oh yea. talking about a small subset of words that his wife used in a speech, that the wookie also spoke, that many people throughout history have spoken.
        fake – not sure how he pulls this off in the business world. you really think his billions are made with monopoly money…
        non-informed – you really think he got to where he is at by surrounding himself with stupid people…
        arrogant – look that word up in the dictionary. the empty suits picture is beside it.

        if you are considering a vote against Trump, perhaps you should spend an hour viewing this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LYRUOd_QoM Clinton Cash.
