At least two people were killed and seven people were wounded after a shooting in the US state of North Carolina early on Monday. Police said that shots broke out at about midnight at an “impromptu block party” that followed Juneteenth celebrations in the city of Charlotte. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Deputy Chief Johnny Jennings told reporters that police were called to help an injured pedestrian and found hundreds of people in the streets. He said that after emergency services arrived, several shots were fired. The crowd scattered, and at least additional five people were hit by vehicles while escaping.
