Greenville Police Dept.

A North Carolina woman is facing multiple charges including intent to kill after she opened fire on two men inside of a Greenville AMC Theater after a dispute over a seat in a crowded Black Panther screening.


According to warrants, Shameeka Lynch, 30, tried to shoot and kill two men, Deandre Cox and Randy Jones, with a .32-caliber pistol.

Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman said a dispute over seating arrangements appears to have led up to the shooting.

The Greenville Daily Reflector reported that the theater was full of patrons who were there to see “Black Panther.”

Lynch’s bond remains set at $250,000, and her next court date is March 14. She waived her right to counsel.

Lynch is charged 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.

Wakanda tomfoolery is this?!
