Police are investigating after a woman was killed along Spring Street, just north of Uptown, Wednesday afternoon.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police are investigating after a person was killed just north of Uptown Charlotte Wednesday. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called to the 1400 block of Spring Street, near Greenhaven Apartments and the intersection of Statesville Avenue and Oaklawn Avenue, around 12:45 p.m. 

Once at the scene, officers found 40-year-old Eileen Rosado who had been shot. She was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. 

Based on information from witnesses, detectives said they had reason to believe the suspect was still there. Out of caution, CMPD's SWAT team responded to assist with the search. Detectives ultimately determined the suspect had fled the area. No further suspect information has been released at this time. 

Walter G. Byers School was placed on lockdown as a precaution due to police activity in the area, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools said.
