CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Authorities have released the 911 calls that followed a drive-by shooting last week in east Charlotte that seriously hurt a 4-year-old.

The shooting happened on Wallace Road, near Parkwood Apartments, on Aug. 29. The 911 call can be hard to listen to, as a family member pleads for help after the child was shot.

“Oh my God, hurry up. Please send someone, my baby got shot. Please hurry up. Please hurry up,” the caller says.

The dispatcher then asks the caller how many shots they heard.

“I heard a lot of shots. I was in the house. I just saw people running,” the caller says.
