ROBESON COUNTY, N.C – I’m posting this story because I feel bad for this guy and his family, and would like to help them out in any way I can. James A Hunt, Principal of Fairmont Middle School, was driving to school early the morning of April 9, on a two-lane country road, when a pickup truck approached him from behind, pulled alongside, and fired a shotgun blast into his face and hand. Amazingly, he survived after driving himself to the hospital before being flown to Duke Medical Center. He is now facing mounting medical bills resulting from the work performed to repair the severe facial injuries he suffered and the shooter remains at large.
In case you couldn’t watch the video, Hunt describes the shooting and the injuries he suffered. He believes the shooting could be gang related resulting from a Stop the Violence anti-gang rally he held at his school two days before he was shot. Detectives have not confirmed or denied this attack was gang related. “We’ve been following on those leads. We’ve worked this case constantly. It’s been difficult,” said Major Howard Branch, with the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office. Hunt is considering contacting the FBI and America’s Most Wanted about his case.
Now so you guys know, I do not know this gentleman, nor have I ever corresponded with him. I am merely came across his story and his blog and want to see the individual(s) who carried out this act apprehended. Mr. Hunt is asking for donations on his site, as he’s been denied workers compensation because his injuries are not considered work related, but I am neither encouraging or discouraging anyone from doing so. That’s up to you. I am simply posting the story because the crime itself seems so deliberate and the family is now in hiding, not knowing if the shooter will attempt to finish what he had started. I figure any bit of publicity this case can get, the better.
If you have information on the shooting, you’re asked to call the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 671-3100.
