VIOLENT NIGHT: Pitt County Investigates As Two Are Shot, One Stabbed

After Pitt County lawmen arrested a murder suspect and two others believed to be connected to the crime in December, investigators were called to two new crime scenes.

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office says one man was shot, and another was stabbed on Samuel Court., which is off County Home Rd., just south of Greenville. The call came in at 12:12 a.m. Monday.

In that case deputies say Carlos Guilford and Kim Midgett had argued earlier in the day and the woman later called her nephew, Christopher Carter. Carter also brought an uncle, Terrance Whitaker, to the home as well.

Deputies say the two started hitting Guilford and he pulled out a knife, wounding Carter in the abdomen. They say one of the two men then pulled out a gun and shot Guilford in the chest.

Whitaker has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious injury. He's in jail on a $750,000 secured bond.

Wallace says lawmen are also investigating a shooting at the Copper Kettle night club, which is on Highway 903 North in Pitt County. The call came to investigators at 2:48 a.m.

They say Billy Evans, Jr. was struck in the left abdomen after people in a car across from the nightclub and a car in the parking lot exchanged gunfire.

He was treated and released from Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

The shootings on Highway 903 and on Samuel Court happened after lawmen arrested a man for a murder they say took place on Christmas Eve.
