CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – A shooting in south Charlotte on Sunday evening resulted in the third homicide death of the day in the city.

The incident occurred on Yorkmont Road near the Billy Graham Parkway and South Tryon Street.

CMPD said a woman was shot and killed in a hotel room at the Extended Stay hotel. A man was also shot and has life-threatening injuries.

“I think people that have hope, opportunities, are less likely to throw their lives away in violence because the end result of this is death or prison,” said CMPD Major Mike Campagna.

Medic confirmed that two victims had been found at the scene of the shooting. One victim was pronounced deceased at the scene and the other is being treated for life-threatening injuries at the hospital.

No further information has been released at this time.
