CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said four people were shot Thursday night at an anti-violence memorial for an alleged robber who was shot and killed by a store clerk in Charlotte last week.
People were gathering near Pinckney Avenue and Matheson Avenue to remember Javon Booker. Booker was shot and killed while trying to rob a convenience store in Hidden Valley last Thursday night.
Witnesses told NBC Charlotte that mourners were dispersing when shots were fired.
The victims who were hit were found by first responders at separate scenes, including Allen Street and Pegram Street.
Medics transported one person with life threatening injuries to Novant from the scene on Pegram. A patient from the scene on Allen also suffered life threatening injuries and was taken to CMC Main. The other two victims were taken to CMC with non life threatening injuries.
Police have not made any arrests.
