SOUTHEAST CHARLOTTE - One person was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with life-threatening injuries from a shooting in the 3400 block of Oak Arbor Lane, paramedics said.
A police helicopter circled the Grier Heights community searching for the shooter, as the victim rode away in an ambulance.
Police said someone shot him in the leg yards away from an apartment.
Pecola Fincher is disappointed to see crime scene tape in her neighborhood again.
“It's sad. It's sad,” Fincher said.
She is in the process of moving out.
"Every time you come around somebody is dying or getting shot," Fincher said.
She was inside her home when she heard gunfire.
“(I) hit the floor real quick,” Fincher said.
Investigators on the scene told Channel 9 they are still trying to learn more about the victim and what led up to the shooting.
The victim went into surgery Tuesday afternoon.
His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Police detained one man for questioning, but are not calling him a suspect.
