The Pitt County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a Plymouth man who is being charged with attempted first-degree murder in a shooting at the Night Train Club June 24.

Vincent Smith, 30, was arrested Thursday night. Smith was previously charged in a triple shooting in Plymouth on December 23 at the D’lux Night Club.

Just after 3:45 in the morning, deputies responded to the Night Train Bar and Lounge on Highway 11 in reference to shots fired.

Upon arrival, they found four victims with gunshot wounds. All victims were transported to Vidant Medical Center with non-life threating injuries.

Willie Acklin, the club’s owner, and Timothy White Jr., a bouncer, were both charged with four counts of accessory after the fact, one court of obstruction of justice and one count of alter, steal or destroy criminal evidence.

Acklin and White were each being held in lieu of $1,000,000 bail.

The Night Train Bar and Lounge had its liquor license revoked back in May, according to the North Carolina ABC Commission.

The investigation is ongoing, and the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office said more arrests are expected. Anyone with information is asked to call Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.
