CMPD: Two Afternoon Shootings Connected

From The Charlotte Observer, May 9, 2013

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are searching for suspects in two Thursday afternoon shootings they say are connected.


Both of the shootings occurred east of Charlotte’s NoDa neighborhood. Medic officials did not treat anyone at either scene but police said two people showed up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds.

One of the shootings occurred at the Bojangles at 2501 North Tryon St. sometime after 3 p.m. The other happened about a mile west of there, at the intersection of Pinckney and Leigh avenues, near Charles Avenue Park.

WCNC-TV reported that CMPD had the scene roped off with crime tape and were searching nearby neighborhoods with canines.

At 5 p.m. police were trying to determine whether the victims were shot at the same scene or separately.

Detectives were also investigating the severity of the gunshot wounds and how the victims got to the hospital.

Few other details were immediately available.
