    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police are still piecing together what happened on East W. T. Harris Boulevard Wednesday during rush hour. They told Eyewitness News shots were fired at a car. 

    "We saw police cars out there (and) a vehicle,” said Kurt Mace, a student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. "It looked like it had got hit with something."

    Mace said he pulled up to the scene minutes after shots were fired. 

    "We thought it was just an accident," Mace said. "But then we figured out that it was gunshots. It’s insane."

    Investigators said a white sedan was hit by one of the cars involved in the shooting.

    The victims of the hit-and-run stayed on scene. The other two cars fled. Police have not located the people who were shot at or the people who did the shooting. 

    "They could have hit somebody else and not their target," UNCC student Isaac Wetzel said.
