CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A pregnant 19-year-old was shot in the parking lot outside an arcade Saturday evening and delivered her baby at the hospital as a result, according to WSOC.

Mother and child have life-threatening injuries and are being treated at Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center.

CMPD said the shooting happened around 6 p.m. outside the Busy Arcade on Beatties Ford Road, north of Interstate 85 in northwest Charlotte. It’s the third shooting near or in an arcade business in the last six weeks.
