Grey clouds hovered over the stadium, with the wind picking up enough to blow around papers and knock ballcaps off heads. The swift-water rescues on Saturday morning were mostly of people who hadn't heeded those orders, said Burgaw Fire Capt.

Videos circulating on social media showed musicians in the plaza playing their music around the time of the shooting, without skipping a beat. Police blame much of the capital's crime on drug dealers and protection rackets run by violent gangs.
