GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Authorities say that five teens and a 20-year-old were arrested after shots were fired during a large party at a beauty supply shop Saturday.

The incident was reported around 1 a.m. at Morning Glory Products, Inc., at 3511 N. Memorial Drive in Greenville, Pitt County deputies said.

A large crowd was leaving a private party when a disturbance broke out and shots were fired. 

Evidence showed that shots were fired from a rifle, officials said. Three vehicles and two buildings were struck by bullets. 

There were no reported injuries. Suspects left the scene in a silver Dodge car.

Shortly after the car description dispatch, deputies, assisted by Greenville police, stopped the suspect vehicle in the parking lot of Harvey’s restaurant on North Memorial Drive, officials said.
