York Investigates Carver Gardens Shooting

July 28th, 2012 by Kim Lenz

The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office is investigating an early-morning shooting in the Bruton area of Upper York County.

Deputies were called at 3:15 a.m. Saturday to the 100 block of Luther Drive in the Carver Gardens neighborhood for a reported gunshot victim. They arrived to find a 23-year-old York County man suffering from a single gunshot wound to the pelvis. Police said in a press release the victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was being treated for what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury.

Police said the victim was outdoors when shot and the shooting seems to have occurred in the area of Bethune Drive, near where the victim was found.


No information about a suspect was available.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    It is an affordable neighborhood with good folks. They are on the periphery of the county and are poorly served. Would not happen in Kiln Creek.

    As always York wants to tax Williamsburg real estate values with Hampton quality/ethical service.

    In Williamsburg I see their folks at the rec center and library. The word parasite comes to mind.

    If it were not for GI kid’s subsidies in their educational system, they would have some serious funding problems

    “In Williamsburg I see their folks at the rec center and library. The word parasite comes to mind. “

    The Williamsburg Library does not allow anyone to use computers, borrow books or loan even online resources if you are not a Williamsburg or James City county residence, so I don’t who these “parasites” are you speak of, but your library system has effectively shut out all non-residents. Apparently the people you think are parasites are your Will. neighbors.
    BTW, all the surroundings library systems from Hampton to Yorktown allow any state residence to use their library system and get a card. WRL is the stingy curmudgeon on the Peninsula.

    Bogeygolfer, unfortunately, crime happens anywhere. Shootings have happened in Kiln Creek, so your argument is poor. I am curious to know how you can tell where people are from when you visit those facilities. Everyone’s life story is different, life is too precious for anyone to be considered a parasite.

    Brandy,on the other hand, the Williamsburg Library does serve all of York County in addition to the localities listed. Out of area residents may freely use computers and access those online resources onsite. Using your local library’s interlibrary loan service gives you access to books from around the country that your local library may not have. So, in reality, you may borrow books from Williamsburg. You just have to order them and pick them up at your local library.
