Officers arrested six people after shots were fired as a party was breaking up at a business north of Greenville, the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office reported on Sunday.

Deputies were called to Morning Glory Products, 3511 N. Memorial Drive, about 1 a.m. on Saturday, according to a news release issued by the department.

It was reported that a large crowd was leaving a private party at the business, located north of N.C. 903, when a disturbance occurred with shots fired, the release said.

Evidence showed that shots had been from a rifle, the release said. Three vehicles and two buildings were struck by bullets. There were no reported injuries. Suspects had left the scene in a silver Dodge passenger car.

Shortly after dispatch, deputies, assisted by Greenville Police Department officers, stopped the suspect vehicle in the parking lot of Harvey’s restaurant on North Memorial Drive in the city. Six men between 18-20 years of age were in the car.

During a search of the vehicle, officers seized a loaded black SKS rifle and two loaded magazines. A check of the weapon found it to be stolen from a previous Greenville case.

The men were identified as Christopher Nimetrius King, 18, Douglas Avenue; Michael Lamont Wooten Jr., 20; Emmas Place; Dehquan Tyrell Cherry, 18, Laughinghouse Drive; Te-Shawn Daniels, 19, Dudley Street; Rozee Daquan Johnson, 19, Ford Street; and Corey Devon Jones Jr, 19. Pug Moore Road, Bethel.

Each man was charged with discharging a weapon into occupied property; going armed to the terror of the public; possession of stolen firearm; and injury to personal property.

Jones also was charged with providing false information to an officer and was served with outstanding warrants for assault on a female, and failure to appear for resisting a public officer. 

King, Daniels and Johnson each were jailed in the Pitt County Detention Center under $300,000 secured bonds; Wooten and Cherry were jailed under $125,000 secured bonds; and Jones was not given bond.
