Late Saturday night, someone fired shots inside of the AMC movie theater on Firepower Road in Greenville.

A Tarboro woman, Shameeka Lynch, turned herself in and is now being with one count of discharging a firearm in an enclosure to incite fear and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill. Warrants out for Lynch, she tried to killed 2 men with a .32 caliber pistol over seating arrangements in the theater. The two men have been identified as Deandre Cox and Randy Jones.

The AMC theater has recently changed its seating to assigned seats. When you purchase a ticket, you pick what seats you would like before entering the theater.

Lynch made her first court appearance on Monday morning, and her bond remains set at $250,000. Her next court date is Mach 14. She waived her right to counsel.
