Police are continuing to investigate a shooting outside a southwest Charlotte daycare from Friday, CMPD said.

Officers responded to calls regarding gunfire at a daycare near 3900 Arrowood Road around 3 p.m. on Friday.

Detectives learned that Isaiah Kersey, 20, arrived with two other men, to pick up Kersey’s son, none of whom are on the approved pick-up list, so the mother was called. The mom, along with three other men, arrived a short time later, and the two groups began arguing. Both groups began shooting at each other, the police report indicated, and the school immediately went into lockdown.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported from the shooting, other than an employee who fled the scene and injured their arm. Two cars were damaged in the shooting.
