CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say four people were shot and wounded when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/17KCSb0) Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the Thursday night vigil, calling attention to the death of a man who police say was fatally shot when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store.

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

When officers arrived, they found that most people had fled, and there were no shooting victims. But police learned that there were four victims, each of whom had called 911 from a different location.

Police have made no arrests in the case.

    Let me guess. The young man they were holding the vigil for, who was killed holding up a “convenience store”, was trying to turn his life around. He has a baby that he thinks the world of, and would do anything for. He just got his GED, and planned on enrolling in the community college this spring. The mama’s crying he was such a good boy, and wouldn’t hurt nobody. He just got mixed up with the wrong crowd. If there were only more government programs to save fine young men like him.

I love these stories, its like the Pit bull that eats its owners kid, he was a great family pet, the kids eat out of the same food boel as him he never bit anyone.Blah,Blah. we need some Dexters operating in this world soon or it will all be for not.
