Two people were shot dead and 12 others hurt early Monday at an "impromptu block party" in North Carolina, Deputy Chief Johnny Jennings of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said.
"Several shooters discharged dozens of shots into the crowd," the CMPD said in a statement.
Officers responded to a call of a pedestrian hit around 12:30 a.m., when they heard gunshots, the statement said. When they got to the scene, officers found a woman with a gunshot wound lying in Beatties Ford Road with a gunshot wound. She died at the scene, the release said.
CNN affiliate WBTV reported "hundreds of people" were in the streets.
