    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and Charlotte Fire Department Dive Team members search a pond on Durham Lane in north Charlotte on Wednesday.

Four people have been arrested in connection with shootings that left two people injured Tuesday morning in north Charlotte, police said.

On Wednesday, police and a Charlotte Fire Department dive team were searching a pond near the shooting scene for evidence, according to a spokeswoman.

The shootings took place about 11 a.m. Tuesday in the 3500 block of Durham Lane, off Statesville Avenue north of Cindy Lane. Two victims were taken to the hospital and are recovering from their wounds, police said.

Investigators said the shootings were the result of an earlier argument among several people. No additional suspects are being sought, police said.

Police said Keshon Johnson, 23, and Bryan Johnson Jr., 21, were charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. Also arrested, police said, were Dajuon Wannamaker, 17, charged with accessory after the fact to assault with a deadly weapon, and Demontra Glenn, 22, charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The shootings forced a brief lockdown at nearby Ranson Middle School.

Wednesday morning, police and the dive team spent several hours at the pond. Divers entered the water, and crews used small inflatable boats.
