4 Shot During Anti-Violence Event in North Charlotte

From http://www.wsoctv.com, September 5, 2013

Four people were shot at the end of an anti-violence event late Thursday in north Charlotte.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m., the Mothers of Murdered Offspring was wrapping up a candlelight vigil honoring a man killed in a shooting last week when someone began firing shots into the crowd on Pinckney Avenue off Matheson Avenue.

The organizer of the vigil said MOM members were cleaning up at the time, but children were still in the crowd when the shots rang out. She said people picked up those children and scattered in all directions.

Four people were hit but none have life-threatening injuries. They were all taken to area hospitals.

Police have not made any arrests.

The vigil organizer said nothing like this has ever happened at one of the MOM events. The vigil honored Javon Booker, who died after he was shot during a convenience store robbery.

Eyewitness News is working to learn the conditions of the victims.
