One man was loaded into an ambulance and rushed to Carolinas Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the gut.

Police said he is expected to survive.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said an altercation between two men who knew each other spiraled out of control when one man grabbed a gun and shot the other.

Officers were seen carting a woman off in handcuffs, although it's not clear yet why.
