CMPD Investigating Drive-by Shooting in Hidden Valley

By ANN DOSS HELMS / Charlotte Observer, June 20, 2013

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating a drive-by shooting in the Hidden Valley neighborhood reported late Wednesday night.

A victim was hit in the stomach area, according to Capt. N.K. Bowling. He said the injury is not considered life-threatening. Police have only a vague description of the shot being fired from a passing SUV.

The incident happened at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 1400 block of Tom Hunter Road, near the Sugar Creek exit of Interstate 85. That’s about a mile north of Hidden Valley Elementary School, where an undercover drug buy turned into a fatal shooting Tuesday.

Police Chief Rodney Monroe said that incident was part of a larger investigation into crime in the neighborhood, which has been troubled by violence and gang activity for years. Residents had seen progress, and voiced dismay at the Tuesday shoot-out.
