The Pitt County Sheriff Office on Sunday arrested a 21-year-old Greenville man on charges that he shot and seriously wounded another man at a night club near Bethel.

Deputies were called to the Night Train, 5011 N.C. 11 North, about 3:30 a.m. and were told one person had been shot and was taken to the hospital by private vehicle, a news release said. 

Deputies went to Vidant Medical Center to check on the status of the man, later identified as Trabian Takorya Moore, 33, of Greenville. They were told Moore was in surgery. He was in serious condition at Vidant on Monday.

The investigation led deputies to Nehemiah Christopher Austin of 1834 Hop Tyson Road, the news release said. Austin was located in the Pitt County Detention due to being arrested earlier by Greenville Police for driving while license revoked.

Austin was charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. His bond was $1.5 million.

It was unclear Monday afternoon what prompted the shooting, the news release said. An investigation is continuing.  

Several shootings have been reported at the Night Train, including one that injured four people on June 25. Three people were charged in the shooting — two of them also were among the four who were wounded. 

The owner and a bouncer also were arrested on charges they tried to clean up evidence. The club’s alcohol license was suspended at that time.

Deputies also responded to a shooting that wounded one man at the club On April 9, 2017. That shooting triggered two others, one at a Sheetz in Greenville, authorities said, and a later incident that killed a 30-year-old Greenville man in Kinston.

Deputies also responded to a shooting at the club in September 2014.
