Two people were shot and killed in South End, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police confirmed to our news partners at WBTV.

State of play: The shooting happened just before midnight near the corner of Summit Avenue and South Tryon Street. CMPD focused their attention on two cars at the scene, one of which had its driver’s side window blown out.

Details: Investigators say when they arrived, they found a woman who’d been shot. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

  • Police said they also found a man who’d been shot; he died at the hospital.
  • According to investigators, the two knew each other. They are calling this a homicide but say they’re not looking for any suspects.
  • The shooting happened in a busy area of South End that has bars and restaurants.

Between the lines: Since two people were killed in the area and officers are not looking for a suspect, WBTV asked CMPD if people should be concerned for their safety following the shooting.

  • “Due to the relationship between both individuals, we do not believe this was a random act of violence.” CMPD Maj. Brad Koch said.
