CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Investigators with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are looking for a suspect following a fatal shooting.

A statement from police said officers responded to a report in which three people were shot Wednesday afternoon.

Police said one person was pronounced dead at Carolinas Medical Center. Two other people were taken to the hospital with what was described as non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities identified the dead man as 54-year-old Charles Anthony Jefferson.

Detectives determined that the suspect and three victims all knew each another and got into an argument when the suspect began shooting at the victims.
