One person was killed and another was injured in an apparent double shooting in east Charlotte Thursday night.

Police have not released details about the shooting, which happened just before 10 p.m. on Rosecroft Drive near East W.T. Harris Boulevard and Milton Road. It was unclear if a suspect was on the loose.

A spokesman for Medic, the county’s paramedic service said one patient was transported to Carolinas Medical Center near uptown with life-threatening injuries. Another was dead when paramedics arrived.
