Charlottes recent spate of violence took a new twist Thursday night when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil in the citys Villa Heights neighborhood.
Four people were injured, but police say none of the victims injuries is considered life-threatening. No arrests have been announced.
Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the vigil, calling attention to last Thursdays death of Javon Booker, who police say was fatally shot when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store on Tom Hunter Road in north Charlotte. The service took place in the 2500 block of Pinckney Avenue, a block south of Matheson Avenue.
Shortly after 10:30 p.m., police 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 within a short time, police learned that there were four victims, each of whom had called 911 from a different location.
Detectives spent much of the night gathering evidence and talking to witnesses.

I went to a funeral and a rap concert broke out.
Ya can’t make this stuff up!
embracing the thug life
Rational people would recognize the irony here.
that’s surprising because those candlelight vigils are usually so effective.
“I went to a funeral and a rap concert broke out.”
That was the BET show. They now do both funerals and shootings at the same time.
Holder... “your people” are animals.
Now that's what I call, "Cutting out the Middle Man."
I’ll bet the local LEOs don’t suspect terrorism being involved at this time. Just another case of a little anti-violence violence. Happens all the time.
Just let them kill each other off.
The sooner that happens, the sooner the rest of the world will be at peace.
“Murdered Offspring” now includes CRIMINALS shot while robbing stores?? Lil ol Javon is dead because he committed a crime! Vigils for criminals....OY!
Just another episode of “N-words” Gone Wild...
Heh. When I lived in Buffalo, they'd throw these wail-fests all the time. The ministers, politicians, moms, and tiny siblings would all show up to abhor [abhor I tell you] the violence perpetrated by their own sons.
Wherever leftist reprobates gather....
“Four people were injured, but police say none of the victims injuries is considered life-threatening.”
D@mn thugs need more time on the range! Ammo is expensive and scarce you idiots! /s
And why do ‘The Bad Guys’ always seem to have enough ammo?
Let's be honest, at gatherings of white Leftists there will be a lot of stupidity uttered, but there will seldom if ever be shootings or violence. This is a black issue, not a Leftist issue.
Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the vigil, calling attention to last Thursdays death of Javon Booker, who police say was fatally shot when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store ........................... Uhhhhh? “murdered” when “holding up a store”, here we go again, SYG at the center. There is a difference between, “murder” and being “killed”. The murdered guy was “killed” during a robbery attempt. It wasn’t a premeditated hit. I take it the cops were black, if they weren’t Al, Jessie and $abrina would be right on it.
You could laugh.
I find myself having to that way too often these days.
I sense an Ad Council spot. Not.
I went to a rap concert and a funeral broke out.....
He attempted to rob an inconvenience store.
Javon .... don’t even need to check .... one of those made up names gives it away. I assume that the mentality is that if you are named Javon, Trayvon, or whatever you are entitled to rob or attack others and get a free pass .... but not all the time.
“Last night I went to the fights but instead a hockey game broke out.”
Javon, Trayvon, La'Von, Whovon, Mevon, Wattavon...take whatever "von" you want, and it's ghetto, baby.
A small town near me had a candlelight vigil right after 9-11. Wife and I went, expecting to hear some Fire & Brimstone speeches by the mayor, and "trampling out the vintage" rhetoric by the attending church leaders. What we heard was the most maudlin, hand-wringing performance I ever witnessed. There was a general miasma of "poor us" and "Can't we all get along B/S". I wanted to leave, but stayed out of respect for the fallen, but by God, that was the last of these "vigils" I will ever attend.
I prefer this think of diseased, rabid animals. Healthy animals don't behave this way.
They can hold as many peace vigils as they want. Until they begin to understand that individual hearts and then homes have to be changed, the problem will only get worse. Positive change has to come from the inside out and it starts with responsible parents, preferably two of them. And no, the government cannot be counted as one.
No, you cannot!
