A shooting in uptown over the weekend was captured on video, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, is shown firing a gun and then running away through the intersection of 4th and Brevard streets, next to the Charlotte Transit Center.
The video doesn’t have sound, but a couple of pedestrians in the background seem to react to the gunfire. They start to run and duck while the suspect ran diagonally across the intersection, which is just a few blocks from the Epicentre and Spectrum Center.
At the time of the shooting, just before 2:45 a.m. Saturday, the suspect was wearing a green t-shirt with yellow wording on it and a red backpack, police said.
