4 wounded in shooting at NC anti-violence vigil

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — North Carolina police say four people were shot and wounded when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil.

The Charlotte Observer reports Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the Thursday night vigil. They were calling attention to the death of a man who police say was fatally shot when he tried to rob a convenience store.

A statement from police says officers were called by someone at the vigil who said a person pulled a gun and began firing at people.

When officers arrived, they found that most people had fled, and there were no shooting victims. But police learned that there were four victims. Each had called 911 from a different location.

Police have made no arrests in the case.
