'Armed, dangerous' man wanted in child's shooting

Police need your help trying to find a man wanted for shooting a 5-year-old girl, who authorities say is armed and dangerous.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police need your help trying to find a man wanted for shooting a 5-year-old girl, who authorities say is armed and dangerous.

The little girl had surgery Thursday night and is considered to be in critical but stable condition after being struck when the suspect fired into the car in which she was riding. 

You can hear the horror in the 911 caller's voice.

"I need police at 1501 North Tryon. A little girl's got shot."

"Okay, I gotta get MEDIC on the phone."

A 5-year-old little girl was hit in a drive-by shooting as police say 27-year-old Patrick Glenn fired at the car she was a passenger in.

It happened at the intersection of College and 12th Streets, but the driver of the car she was in stopped a few blocks away at a 7-Eleven to call for help.

There were four others in the car, including another child, but no one else was hit.

Police are asking for help finding Glenn and are warning that he is armed and dangerous. Glenn is a convicted felon who shouldn't have had a gun and is also wanted for another shooting.

"It's terrible. I had no idea-- shocked-- especially when a kid is involved, so pointless and angry."

Police are looking for a newer model silver Nissan Sentra. If you have any information on the car or where Glenn is hiding, call Crime Stoppers at (704) 334-1600.
