— Enfield police said Wednesday that they arrested a suspect in a shooting that happened during a fight early Saturday in the Halifax County town.

Jeffrey Clark Jr., of Enfield, was arrested at a home on Tucker Street and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

An unidentified man was shot in the upper area of both legs, police said, and was taken to a local hospital and later released. Investigators said his injuries could have been fatal.

According to police, the shooting was the result of an altercation that, witnesses said, started at K's Lounge on South McDaniel Street and continued into the street.

The owner of K's Lounge, Karva Whitaker, said there were no fights or verbal altercation inside his club that morning.

Police said that an officer heard multiple gunshots around 2:30 a.m., and when police arrived at the scene, they heard several additional gunshots and saw a man fleeing the scene on foot.

Police later arrested Clark, who was in the Halifax County jail Wednesday morning under a $50,000 secured bond.

    Adjusted to population, I'd be willing to bet that Halifax and Nash counties are more dangerous than Durham. But not more dangerous than Fayetteville.

    what happen to carrying a hand gun by a felon?

    I always take my gun to bars because I believe you should be ready to protect your girlfriend. I practice fast draw so nobody going to get the drop on me.

    If you were secure with your relationship you wouldn't need the gun.

    The shooter really took care of his girlfriend. He ran like the dog he was. Did he ever hear of a knucle sandwich it is quite effective for shutting some one up and the other person usua;;y learns a lesson. Hope the girl gets smart and stays away for both these gentlemen

    Well that is illegal

    Wow, "NotAgain." You scare me. You are not legally allowed to carry a concealed weapon into any establishment that sells alcohol. If you are that worried about your girlfriend, find another hangout.
