CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — One person has been killed and three others hurt in a drive-by shooting in Charlotte.

Police say the shootings occurred shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday in a neighborhood near Interstate 85. Officials locked down a nearby elementary school for a time. Hidden Valley Elementary was released from lockdown about an hour later.

No arrests have been made.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Capt. Rob Dance says the victims were in a car when another vehicle pulled up beside them and someone began shooting.

Officers found one person dead in the car and another seriously injured. Two others injured in the shooting had been taken to the hospitals by some other people.

The names of the victims have not been released.
