CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are looking for a suspect accused of shooting someone in a busy bowling alley over the weekend. 

Saturday shortly after 6:30 p.m., a man entered the AMF Centennial Lanes business at 4501 South Boulevard. While inside, he had a verbal altercation with a victim, who has not been named.
