CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A person fatally shot during a graduation party in uptown Charlotte early Wednesday morning was identified as 24-year-old Calvin Haines.
Police say four people, Haines, a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old, and a 22-year-old, were shot outside following an altercation.
Three of the victims, including Haines, were found shot in the stairwell of an apartment building where a graduation party was being held around 12:52 a.m. The building is located on Graham Street at 6th Street.
The 16-year-old is being hospitalized in critical condition and the other two victims suffered minor injuries.
At least one person is being questioned. “This person is no longer a threat out there currently," police said Wednesday of the person believed to be responsible.
“It’s getting more than frustrating, it’s getting downright tragic,” CMPD’s Rob Tufano said about the situation.
The place the party was held was being rented, police say, for a “post-graduation celebration.”
"There were young teenagers there. I mean one of the victims at the hospital was 16,” police said of the victims, whose names have not been released.
This is an ongoing, active investigation.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call homicide detectives at 704-432-TIPS.
