Two people were shot and rushed to the hospital due to serious injuries just after 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 15. The shooting occurred on Margie Ann Drive, just outside of UNC Charlotte’s campus, officials said.
Amber Hedrick, a woman living near the scene of the shooting, was out walking her dog when she heard shots being fired and saw the victims’ car hit a tree. She immediately “put towels on the wounds” of the victims and called 911. Hedrick recalled that one of the victims claimed to be escaping from someone and heard him say, “Please don’t let them kill me.”
The victims have life-threatening injuries and are now at Atrium Health’s Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte.
This is an ongoing investigation.
