Original Post:

Police in the Raleigh area are searching for Tariq James Taylor after he shot several people at a Food Lion Grocery store in Wendell, NC on Wednesday. Taylor had been previously arrested with the Obama endorsed Occupy Raleigh protesters  at an Occupy event on October 16th.  ABC 11 Has more:

“WENDELL, N.C. (WTVD) — Police are currently searching for 21-year-old Tariq James Taylor, the man who allegedly opened fire in a Wendell Food Lion grocery store Wednesday. Three employees were shot around 7 p.m. in the 2800 block of Wendell Boulevard.

Police said the shooting was a domestic dispute involving Taylor and his boyfriend. They said Taylor also shot two other employees. In all, they said he is believed to have fired eight or nine gunshots.”

Police consider Taylor to be armed and dangerous. I hope Mayor Meeker is paying attention since more of these peaceful occupiers are camping on a vacant lot near the Legislature.
