The shooting was reported around 3 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of E. Independence Boulevard and Sam Newell Road, about 10 miles southeast of uptown Charlotte.

“It was discovered that there was a total of three victims involved. One had received a direct gunshot wound, one had been grazed by a gunshot, and the third received injuries due to glass breakage.”

Investigators say the shots came from a blue Chrysler, as the three victims were stopped on eastbound East Independence, waiting to turn south onto Sam Newell Road.

“An unknown suspect from a vehicle traveling westbound on E. Independence Blvd. fired multiple gunshots at the victim’s vehicle as it went through the intersection,” police said. “This case is believed to be an isolated incident.”
