KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) – Kinston police say gunshots were fired as people left a party at a bar late Friday night into the early hours of Saturday morning.
Officers were called to Jay’s Place to help staff with crowd control as a party was ending early Saturday morning around 2:45 a.m.
Within minutes of officers getting to the bar on West Blount Street, officials say shots were fired.
Police say Dontrieves Hooker, 44, of La Grange, waved a gun at a group of women he was in an argument with and then fired two shots at one of the women.
