Man shot in stomach during drive-by in north Charlotte, police say

Updated:

A man is recovering in the hospital after police in Charlotte say he was shot in the stomach during an early morning drive-by shooting at a convenience store.

Officers were called to the Race Way along Sugar Creek Road in north Charlotte around 4:30 a.m. Friday morning.

Police say they found 23-year-old Robert Brewer with a gunshot wounds in the abdomen.

They found him lying outside the store holding his stomach and complaining of being injured.

Officers believe a four-door gold vehicle was involved in the shooting, but they are unclear on what type of vehicle. Video surveillance from the convenience store is distorted and not very good in quality.

Police on scene were not able to find any bullet casings on the ground, which leads them to believe the casings are still inside the vehicle.

Brewer was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Main to be treated for his injuries.
