Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say an 8-year-old boy drowned Saturday night in a southeast Charlotte swimming pool, authorities said.

The drowning was reported about 8:30 p.m. at a pool in the 1700 block of Renard Ridge Road. That is at a condominium complex off Monroe Road, near Village Lake Drive.

A chain link fence surrounds the pool, and it is not clear if the pool was still open for the night.
