Shots rang out early Saturday at the Night Train Lounge, and four people were struck.
Pitt County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded about 3:46 a.m. to the Night Train Lounge at 5011 N.C. 11 North, Bethel, in reference to a call about shots fired, according to a news release issued later Saturday by the sheriff’s office.
Upon arrival, they located four victims who had been shot, the release said. The victims, who were not identified in the news release, were transported to Vidant Medical Center with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
The sheriff’s office reported that the investigation is ongoing and more information will be provided as it becomes available.
This is at least the second shooting this year at Night Train.
On April 9, deputies responded to the report of a dispute at the bar about 3:22 a.m. It was over when deputies arrived on scene.
Deputies cleared the parking lot and later learned a 39-year-old man had arrived at Vidant Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the thigh. He reported he had been shot at Night Train.
The crowd that left Night Train reportedly went to Sheetz, 2521 N. Memorial Drive, where shots were fired about 4 a.m., resulting in a 29-year-old man also suffering a gunshot wound to the thigh area. Both men were treated at Vidant.
The following day, a 30-year-old Greenville man was fatally shot in Kinston while driving home from work, and officials believed that shooting to be in retaliation for the Night Train and Sheetz shootings. Three men were charged in that case.
