CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A teenager who died after a shooting is reported to be the 100th homicide victim in North Carolina’s largest city.

The Charlotte Observer reports Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say 19-year-old Nathaniel Lee Isenhour died at a Charlotte hospital on Tuesday after he was shot near a shopping center on Monday.

According to police, someone called 911 to report shots fired. When officers arrived, they found neither a victim nor a shooter. Soon after, staffers at a local hospital notified police of a gunshot wound victim.

Police said Isenhour was transferred from Atrium Health University City Hospital to Carolinas Medical Center Atrium Health with life-threatening injuries. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The newspaper says Charlotte last reported 100 homicides in 1993. There have been no arrests in the case thus far.
