CHARLOTTE – One person was injured in a shooting outside a University City apartment complex Sunday night, medics said.
The incident happened at East Village Apartments on University City Boulevard around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. The area is near the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Paramedics confirmed one person was taken to hospital. Channel 9 is asking for an update on the man’s condition.
During the night, crime scene investigators collected evidence and canvassed the area. They focused on a white Hyundai Elantra near the parking deck.
That’s where Highheem Henton, 24, was shot inside a car, investigators said.
Officials cleared the area around 2 a.m. on Monday.
Resident and UNC Charlotte student Brian Primo said most of the residents are students.
Primo said he was insecure.
“It’s just the same old stuff that happens week in and week out,” Primo said.
Primo said management at the complex is working to alleviate the problems.
However, in all shootings, he is not encouraged.
“They try their best to mitigate it, but at the end of the day, things are going to happen.”
Channel 9 is asking police if anyone is in custody. We’re asking what led up to the shooting and whether the victim and suspect knew each other.
According to the East Village website, the complex houses students for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Police have not released any information related to the case.
This is an evolving story. Check back for updates.
