A man is in jail after deputies say he shot two people last night in Pitt County.
Jimmy Dixon, Jr. of Greenville is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, possession of a firearm by a felon and larceny of a motor vehicle.
Deputies say they believe the shooting is drug related. They got a call last night around 9:45 p.m. from Vidant Medical Center that two people came in who had been shot.
They learned the two victims in sitting in a car with Dixon at the New York Grocery on Old River Road. The victims told investigators that Dixon pulled a handgun and started shooting.
Dixon is jailed on a $300,000 bond.
