His girlfriend, a student at the /*school*/, was also arrested.
The Rocky Mount Telegram reports 22-year-old Verton Dickens is charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds and discharging a fire arm in the city limits.
His girlfriend, 18-year-old Joy Anthony, is accused of inciting a riot and obstruction.
Police say Dickens fired shots in a parking lot near the /*college*/. He allegedly went to the school to help Anthony with a dispute with other students.
No one was hurt. The school's president says the incident was blown out of proportion.
