Two killed, one wounded in Concord shooting


Police aren't saying much about a triple shooting in Concord that left two people dead Tuesday afternoon.

Concord police chief Guy Smith told reporters early Tuesday evening that a man and woman were found shot to death around 3:15 p.m. and a third person, a man, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Chief Smith said police were not looking for any suspects -- that everyone involved was there at the scene -- but he wouldn't elaborate.

Dozens of relatives gathered on Gibson Drive near the home and some speculated that the motive was robbery.

Darren Davis told NBC Charlotte there was a fourth person inside the home at the time of the shooting who was not hurt.

"There was a lady with Alzheimer's -- she wouldn't know what was going on," he said.

Police have not released any names and the investigation is ongoing.
