An attempted robbery at a crowded north Charlotte park sent one man to the hospital.
Police said one suspect was arrested Sunday evening.
Police said the incident happened around 4 p.m. Sunday at Sugar Creek Community Park on West Sugar Creek Road.
Police didn't release the victim's name Sunday, but said they believed he was at the park when a man tried to rob him and eventually shot him with dozens of people around.
"I seen a man lying on the ground (and) everybody was screaming," said Jamese Jones.
She was playing basketball at the park. When she saw the victim, she took off her shirt and put it on the man's wound to keep him from bleeding.
"My first instinct was to just help and that's what I did," she said.
The victim was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and Sunday afternoon, police said he was undergoing surgery. Police said the gunman jumped into a white-colored Pontiac Vibe and drove away.
The rear window was covered in plastic. Eyewitness News checked and found there have been very few violent crimes in the immediate area of the park since the start of the year.
Police have not released the names of the victim or the suspects.
