Man charged in Nov. shooting of 5-year-old girl in Charlotte


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Police have arrested a man wanted in connection with the shooting of a 5-year-old girl near uptown Charlotte last month.

Local news outlets report 27-year-old Patrick Glenn was arrested Tuesday on charges including assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Authorities say the girl was riding in a car with three adults and another child the evening of November 10 when another car pulled up beside it. Someone began firing into the car, hitting the girl, who was asleep in the backseat.

The girl was stable after undergoing emergency surgery.

Police think a man in the child’s car and Glenn know each other. It wasn’t clear if Glenn had an attorney.
