When Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police responded to reports of gunfire near a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bus stop Monday afternoon, they couldn’t find any victims at first, CMPD Lt. Steve Fischbach said Tuesday.
Without information from the student, Fischbach said police have pieced together a narrative from witness interviews and surveillance footage. No one has been arrested, and police are not releasing the name of any potential suspects.

He was getting off the bus near the intersection of Timberbrook Drive and Tuckaseegee Road when the shooting occurred.
The alleged shooter is apparently high school-aged and was also on the school bus just before the shooting, Fischbach said.
“There are no indications of any kind of disagreement or altercation on the bus, before the drop-off,” he said.
Asked whether a gun was on the bus before the shooting, Fischbach told a reporter “that would be left to your own deduction.”
The bus pulled away from its stop before the shots were fired, Fischbach said.
“And at that point, there were kids running everywhere,” he said.
