— A 29-year-old Smithfield woman was arrested and charged early Saturday in connection with an overnight shooting that injured four people at N&N Sports Bar & Grill, police said. 

Krystal Olymica David, of Smithfield, is charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. 

According to investigators, the shooting took place after David and another woman at the restaurant began arguing over a man about 1:30 a.m. David got a weapon from her car following the argument and opened fire inside the bar, police said.

"She really should think twice before she puts other lives in danger like that," said Angela Bloyer, a patron of the N & N Sports Bar. 

N&N Sports Bar & Grill, at 150 South Equity Drive, is located near the Carolina Premium Outlets in Smithfield.

"Normally it's a pretty quiet area, no trouble or anything," Bloyer said.

Four Smithfield residents – Elias Sanders, Charnise Jones, Cedric Mcerchrin and Felicia Jones – were being treated at a local hospital Saturday for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. It wasn't clear if any of the victims were involved in the argument. 

David was in the Johnston County jail Saturday under a $500,000 secured bond. Her first court appearance is scheduled for Monday. 

Anyone who witnessed the shooting or has additional information is asked to call the Smithfield Police Department at 919-934-2121.

    She already has a conviction in Johnson County for Possession of a Weapon on Campus in 2001.

    Oh look, she already has a prior conviction for Possesion of a Weapon on Campus.

    Yep, she's a responsible, law-abiding gun owner.

    This is new and exciting.

    If the gun is stolen and/or she's not legally allowed to own a firearm: Automatic 30 year sentence with no chance for parole. More time for the shootings themselves. Time to stop coddling the criminals.

    It is obvious that she was not "a responsible gun owner", she probably wasn't even the legal owner of the gun.

    Another "responsible" gun owner........ Grand Onion

    Gee, ya think, really? If so, the headline would read, "Responsible gun owner charged . . . "

    "And we want to allow people to carry in bars? drunks with guns."

    Try reading the proposed law before commenting on it. It specifies CCW holders, who all have passed a rigorous background check.

    The NRA called and wants her to be a voice for responsible gun ownership.

    Actually the NRA would want her prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    And we want to allow people to carry in bars? drunks with guns.

    You already have that, obviously.
