Drug deal gone wrong in Marvin

Apparently a drug deal went bad in the Hunter Oaks neighborhood in Marvin last night. First spice, now weed.

WSOC has the story and video:
MARVIN, N.C. -- A suspected drug deal that ended in a shooting Sunday night has authorities worried about drugs infiltrating a Union County high school.

Cameron Cook, 17, was arrested Monday morning after deputies said he shot 19-year-old David Thomas Powell III three times in a small park in the Hunter Oaks subdivision in Marvin.


Luke said the drug deal points to a bigger problem at Marvin Ridge -- an increased drug trade targeting area teenagers.
WCNC has a more detailed story with embeddable video, so as far as I'm concerned, WCNC > WSOC. A snippet before the news clip:
Police collected about $800 worth of pot and other drug dealing paraphernalia at the scene and at least five people were involved in the incident.


“We’ve been working on this for awhile and recently the activity had intensified. It was getting to the point where there are fistfights, kicking fights…groups of boys getting larger,” Kelley said.


“I feel like we have a front row ticket to a show we do not want to watch," she added.

Cook is charged with possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
