CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police in Charlotte said four people were shot and injured when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil Thursday, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The group Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the vigil to draw attention to the death of a man police said was fatally shot while trying to rob a convenience store.

A statement from police said officers were called by someone at the vigil who said a person pulled a gun and began firing gunshots.

Police said when they arrived, most people had fled, but they learned there were four victims who had called 911 from a different location. No arrests have been made.
