CHARLOTTE, MECKLENBURG COUNTY -

North Carolina police say four people were shot and wounded when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil.

The Charlotte Observer reports Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the Thursday night vigil. They were calling attention to the death of a man who police say was fatally shot when he 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.

Officers found no one shot at the scene but learned that each victim had called for help from a different location after the crowd scattered.

Police have made no arrests in the case.
