1 hurt in southwest Charlotte shooting

One person was injured in a shooting Saturday night in southwest Charlotte, authorities said.

The shooting was reported at about 8:45 p.m. in the 200 block of Huntsmoor Drive. That’s off Arrowood Road, about two blocks south of Nations Ford Elementary School.

A spokesman for Medic said the agency’s ambulance was held away from the scene initially because police were concerned that the situation was not safe. But Medic was allowed into the scene a short time later and reported taking one person with life-threatening injuries to Carolinas Medical Center.

Police were at the scene Saturday evening, conducting an investigation. There was no word about a possible suspect.
