1 seriously hurt in south Charlotte shooting, paramedics say

CHARLOTTE — Police roped off a Kia Soul parked in the drive-thru Sunday at a south Charlotte McDonald’s during a shooting investigation near Starbrook Drive and South Boulevard.

Channel 9 reporter Erika Jackson was at the scene around 5:30 p.m. and could see the entrances to the McDonald’s on South Boulevard, the QuikTrip, and Starbrook Drive near the Starmont community blocked off by police.

The McDonald’s remained open during the investigation.

“We saw the cops when we were trying to come down here,” witness Nathaniel Rodriguez said. “It looked like something big had happened. We had never seen this many cops in the area.”

Police wrapped up the crime scene by early Sunday night.

No further information has been released.
