CMPD investigating homicide after shooting in Uptown Charlotte

Police said the victims drove from the 1000 block of West Trade Street to the Charlotte Transportation Center.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — One person has died and another is being treated for injuries after a shooting in Uptown Charlotte Friday night, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

CMPD responded to the 1000 block of West Trade Street, which is near Frazier Park, shortly before 9 p.m. Friday after reports of a shooting. When officers arrived, they learned two victims were driven to the Charlotte Transportation Center on East Trade Street. 

One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. CMPD later identified him as 19-year-old Kaleb Hagins.

The second victim was taken to an area hospital with a life-threatening injury.  

At this point, police have not released any information about a potential suspect. 

CMPD confirmed that the homicide was "completely unrelated" to the protests that took place in Uptown following the Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak to a Homicide Unit detective or contact Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
