Shooting in 2900 block of Berryhill Road off Wilkinson Boulevard near Morehead Street.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers spent much of Tuesday afternoon investigating a shooting on the 2900 block of Berryhill road in West Charlotte.

Ronnie McGriff, a witness, said he heard one shot and saw what he described as a teenager running north on Berryhill and shouting: “He shot me!” He shot me!”

Details remained unclear at 3 p.m., but McGriff said Medic rescuers arrived minutes later and put the teen in an ambulance.

The teenager, wearing a backpack, was about two blocks from Wilkinson Boulevard. Police fanned out along Berryhill knocking on doors.

Investigators had little to say about the incident.
