2 shot in north Charlotte, found within blocks of each other

Two people were shot in north Charlotte on Thursday, police say.

CMPD officers were called to the scene in the 1800 block of Griers Grove Rd. just after 6:45 p.m. after a 911 call came in saying that someone had been shot. 

Upon arrival, officers found a man with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital by MEDIC with non-life threatening injuries.  

Officers then stopped a vehicle on Beatties Ford Rd. at Brookshire Blvd. that appeared to have been involved in the incident.

When they stopped the car they discovered a second man who had been shot. He was also taken to the hospital by MEDIC with potentially life-threatening injuries. 

The two scenes were just a few blocks apart, and police say they are related.
