CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating a shooting that took place in north Charlotte Tuesday night.

According to CMPD, a vehicle pulled into the parking lot of the Skye Mart located in the 3800 block of Brookshire Boulevard and several subjects exited the car. One of the suspects opened fire at another group who were in the same parking lot.

CMPD says two people were struck by gunfire. A car driven by an uninvolved third-party was also hit by the gunfire but the occupant was not hurt.

A 16-year-old male was hit in the leg from the shooting. CMPD said the wounded teen ran away from the shooting scene and was eventually transported to CMC Main by Medic. He is being treated for injuries that are believed to be not life-threatening.

A short time later, 911 received another call that a 14-year-old male showed up at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center with an apparent gunshot wound. Officials did not say if the two teens came from the same shooting scene on Brookshire Boulevard.
