Child suffers life-threatening injuries in Kannapolis drive-by shooting

KANNAPOLIS — A 3-year-old child suffered life-threatening injuries Tuesday in a drive-by shooting that occurred at 900 Buick Avenue.

Kannapolis Police were called to a house on Buick Avenue at about 6:40 p.m. after receiving a drive-by shooting report. The injured child was taken to Atrium Health Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. The parents were at home but not injured.
