CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A bail bondsman is in critical condition after a shooting in southwest Charlotte on Monday afternoon.

According to Major J.D. Thomas with CMPD, police responded to Superior Street in Steele Creek after receiving multiple reports of shots fired. Police also say an innocent woman was grazed by a bullet.

This is just down the road from River Gate Elementary School off Hamilton Road.

Major Thomas said incident was between a bail bondsman attempting to locate a suspect and one other party, leading to a gunfight between all of the parties.

He said the shooting was not related to anyone in the neighborhood and that one of the suspects lives nearby, but not in this community.

Two young men were arrested and charged in connection to the shooting. One of those men was minorly injured in the shooting.

Jalen Terrell Johnson, 22, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury, attempted murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and two counts of shooting into an occupied dwelling. He was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, interviewed by detectives, and was transferred to the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Chance Anthony Armond Logan, 21, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and simple assault. He also was transferred to the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.

The shootout was caught on Ring doorbell camera footage from a house across the street from it.

“My sister has the Ring camera on her phone, and that’s when we realized something was going on in our neighborhood right in front of our house,” Shirley Wright told WBTV.

Wright says she could not believe her eyes when she watched and heard round after round of gunshots fired on her street.

“[I feel] very nervous and uneasy,” she said. “This is how it is now around the United States. It’s really sad that it’s gotten to that point.”

Three guns were recovered from the scene.
