CHARLOTTE, N.C – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are looking for a gunman after a shooting early Saturday morning that left five people injured, including one person with life-threatening injuries.
CMPD spokesman Keith Trietley said in a statement Saturday that police were called to William Reynolds Drive in the Hickory Grove Division just before 2:45 a.m., after getting a call about the shooting.
The caller told police people were injured.
Police found five men suffering from gunshot wounds. Three victims were taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Main, and two were taken to CMC-University.
One of the victims at CMC-Main had life-threatening injuries, said Treitley, but injuries to the others were not considered life-threatening.
Detectives spent hours at the scene looking for evidence. Treitley said the shooting happened after a disturbance among guests at a house party.
CMPD asks anyone who witnessed the shooting, or knows about it, to call their hotline at 704-432-TIPS and speak to a homicide detective. Det. Hoppe is leading the investigation.
