2 shot at crowded hotel party after CIAA tourney
CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — A basketball tournament in Charlotte ended with violence at a party at a hotel that featured rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say two people were shot in the leg early Sunday in a crowded hotel party for some of the thousands of CIAA fans in town.
CIAA Tournament Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter would not talk about the incident because it was not a CIAA-sanctioned event.
Police have not released the names of the victims or said whether they had any connection to Combs or other entertainers at the event. One person was taken to the hospital and the other was treated and released at the scene.
No arrests have been reported.
City officials say 12 adults were arrested in the city’s center during the tournament between Thursday and early Sunday.
