CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - One person is dead and another is injured after a shooting in Uptown Charlotte on Friday night, Medic confirmed.

Medic responded to East Trade Street, near the Spectrum Center and CATS transit center, but according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the shooting happened in the 1000 block of West Trade Street before the victims drove away.

Medic says one person, later identified as Kalen Hagins, died at the scene and another was transported to Atrium CMC with life-threatening injuries.

Medic also responded to East 4th Street for a person who suffered serious injuries from a gunshot wound, although it is unclear if it that situation was involved with the initial incident.

CMPD sent out a tweet saying that the shootings were completely unrelated to demonstrations involving the overturning of Roe v. Wade earlier Friday.

A WBTV reporter at the scene says that parts of the transit center were blocked off, as were multiple streets in the area.

This is a developing story and more information will be added as it becomes available.
