CHARLOTTE, N.C. --  One person was killed in an east Charlotte shooting late Monday afternoon.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police discovered a body in the 5600 block of Wilora Lake Road near North Sharon Amity Road and Central Avenue around 5:30 p.m.

Police believe the victim, 21-year-old Christopher Cordero, and the suspects knew each other and a fight in a driveway led to the shooting.

Officials are looking for two black men who witnesses told police left in a white SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.
