Two men were wounded in a barrage of gun shots early Tuesday while driving in north Charlotte, and it’s believed the shooter was in another vehicle, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police told the Observer’s news partner WBTV.
The German U-boats stationed off the coast of the North Carolina during World War II were extremely successful in early 1942. The unique, offshore environment gave them a distinct advantage and they were able to wreak havoc on the merchant ships that travelled along the busy shipping lanes off of the Outer Banks. The area soon became known as Torpedo Junction because of the hundreds of ships that were sunk there.
