CHARLOTTE, N.C. (KWWL) -

Four people, including two children, were shot in their front yard Saturday night.

Police say a family was having a party at their North Carolina home when they heard shots fired at them.

A 9-year-old boy died at the scene, while three other victims remain in an area hospital this morning with non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation continues as police search for the shooter, while overnight detectives were canvassing the area in an attempt to find witnesses.


"We've done searches though the woods with canines, and our helicopters have been involved," said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Deputy Chief J.W. Estes. "Any case we take serious, and we take them all serious, this would be it."
