CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police arrested the people allegedly responsible for a shooting that left one person dead and another seriously injured in east Charlotte Saturday afternoon.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department were conducting a homicide investigation in the 4600 block of Perth Court after an assault with a deadly weapon call for service came in around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

When officers arrived, they located two men with apparent gunshot wounds.

After a brief standoff, the people in the house surrendered, were taken into custody and taken to police headquarters where they will be interviewed.

Detectives are canvassing the area to determine whether there are any witnesses to this incident.

Crime Scene Search has responded to the call for service to process the scene and collect physical evidence.
