CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A 7-year-old boy was shot and killed Saturday night on Fieldvale Place during a family party, WSOC reported.

Two adults and another child were injured, according to police.

Officials identified the boy as Kevin Antonio Calderon Rodas.

A birthday party was going on in the front yard when shots rang out, authorities said.

Neighbor Beatrice Cunningham was home during the shooting and said several people, including children, were outside at the time.

“I actually got up and went into the house, that’s when the shots started firing,” Cunningham said. “There was probably four or five. There was probably more than that. It sounded like (the gunman) was just pumping it. There was a woman was out here screaming.”
