CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police are searching for the person who shot a man at an east Charlotte bus stop Tuesday morning.

Investigators say the shots were fired at about 1 a.m. Tuesday on Albemarle Road near Farm Pond Lane.

Police say the victim was standing at the bus stop when a car drove by, and someone in that car opened fire.

The man was shot in the hip.

“I pulled up to him before police got there,” said a witness who helped the man. “I was on the phone with the paramedics, doing everything they told me to do. … You just can’t believe that there’s gunshots. You go into the store to get something to drink and then gunshots going off across the street.”

The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
