An auto parts store manager was struck by a car door when he confronted two people who reportedly stole parts from his store on Tuesday morning, a Greenville police spokeswoman said.

Two men are in police custody after a customer followed their vehicle and reported their location to law enforcement, according to Kristen Hunter, Greenville Police Department spokesman.

Greenville Police responded to a larceny at Auto Zone, 900 South Memorial Drive at 9:15 a.m.

“The store manager told officers he witnessed two males steal some unknown auto parts from the store,” Hunter said. "The manager confronted the two men in the parking lot of the store at which point they got into a vehicle and drove away.”

As the men were backing out of a parking spot, their car door — which was still open — struck the store manager and knocked him down. The store manager did not suffer any significant injuries.

A customer followed the vehicle into the county and alerted law enforcement to their location, Hunter said. The customer reported hearing loud bangs, similar to shots being fired. Officers have not determined if shots were fired.

Two men were taken into custody by the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office and the Greenville Police Department at the end of VOA site C Road and Jackie Field Road, Hunter said.

The men's names have not been released. There also was no information criminal charges.
