State v. Harris, ___ N.C. App. ___, 808 S.E.2d 327 (Nov. 21, 2017)

In this attempted murder and assault case, any error with respect to admission of testimony regarding gangs was invited. In his motion in limine, the defendant expressly requested that the trial court either exclude all evidence pertaining to gangs or in the alternative allow cross-examination on the subject. The trial court granted the alternative relief sought and the defendant himself cross-examined and elicited testimony with respect to gangs.
