Edgecombe County, N.C. (WITN) - Two people were killed and two others wounded this past weekend at what state agents say was an illegal bar.

Edgecombe County deputies were called to a home on East Lashley Street, just outside of Pinetops, around 2:15 a.m. Saturday.

Deputies say two victims died at the scene, another was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, while the fourth victim refused treatment.

State Alcohol Law Enforcement agents say they seized over 76 liters of beer and 30 liters of liquor were seized from the home.

Homeowner Tresie Allen, 39, was charged with possession of alcoholic beverages for sale without the applicable ABC permits.

Names of the victims haven’t been released by deputies and there’s no word on any arrests for the actual shooting.
