Police: Cam Newton not a person of interest after shooting
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman Rob Tufano says Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is not a person of interest following a weekend shooting at a Charlotte nightclub.
According to the police report, two people sustained non-life-threatening injuries Saturday night after gunshots were fired at Label nightclub.
WSOC-TV in Charlotte published photos and video Tuesday night that showed Newton on stage with Young Jeezy — one of the rappers scheduled to perform at the party — before gunshots sent people ducking to the ground and fleeing for the exits.
The CIAA basketball tournament was in Charlotte last week, but the conference released a statement Sunday saying the party wasn’t a sanctioned event.
The Panthers declined comment on the incident.
Police say no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
