Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating a shooting at a Steele Creek area Lowe’s that sent one man to the hospital.

Police said that about 7:30 a.m. Sunday, a male was shot outside of a Lowe’s in the 8100 block of South Tryon Street. The man suffered non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Carolinas Medical Center.

Karen Cobb, a spokeswoman for Lowe’s, said the victim was a Lowe’s employee.

“We don’t believe it was a random act of violence,” said Capt. Todd Lontz. “The Steele Creek Division is investigating.”

The shooting happened before the store opened at 8 a.m.

“There were no customers on site at the time it happened,” said Cobb.

No one has been arrested in the case, Lontz said.
