CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Detectives charged four suspects in a shooting in the 3500 block of Durham Lane. Keshon Johnson and Bryan Johnson Jr. were charged with assault with a deadly weapon intent to kill inflicting serious injury, according to a news release.
Dajuon Wannamaker was charged with accessory after the fact and Demontra Glenn was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.             
Investigators said the shooting stemmed from an earlier altercation between the suspects and it was not a random incident. 
Detectives are not looking for any additional subjects.
Keith Glenn showed up on Durham Lane on Tuesday morning after hearing that his son was shot.

“I don't know how bad he's hurt, but something must've happened," Glenn said.  

Neighbors described both victims as being in their early 20s. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the midday shooting at Collins Street and Durham Lane stemmed from a dispute, but that's as specific as investigators would get.

They blocked off two crime scenes, including one at Durham Lane and Collins Street where shell casings were in the road. Police said two men fired shots at each other there.  

It appears one victim then ran to a house a few hundred yards away on Durham Lane. 

The victim was later carried out of the house, conscious, on a stretcher.

Police Capt. Rod Golding said one victim was shot in the leg, another in the hip. It's not clear how the third victim was involved. However, neighbors told Channel 9 it was a woman, possibly the mother of one of the two gunmen, but she was not badly hurt.

Other neighbors said such a violent crime out on the street frightened them.

"It’s like watching your back, ya know. Because you don't know what's going to go on," said Sharon Miller.

Another woman who didn't want her name used said the two victims and possible gunmen were good kids and usually stayed clear of trouble.
Glenn said none of it makes sense.

"People these days are just crazy. These young people are just crazy. I don't understand it," he said.

The investigation is ongoing.
