Police say the victim and shooter got into a brief struggle following an altercation. The victim started to run off when the shooter pulled a handgun and shot him multiple times, police say.
A diner patron drove the victim to Novant Health Presbyterian for treatment.
Police describe the man wanted as a thin black male with a goatee and short dreads. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt.
The vehicle being sought is described as a black four-door sedan with bright headlights and a left front tire that appears to be a spare.
Police don't believe the two knew each other.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 704-336-5727 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
