CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Numerous law enforcement officers have been struck by gunfire on Monday, according to police in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that multiple victims have been transported to hospitals and gunfire continued on the scene in the city.

Authorities did not say exactly how many officers were struck by gunfire amid early report from what police described as a still-active scene Monday afternoon. Many roads in the area were closed for faster ambulance transport. Police urged people to stay away from the area and asked residents to remain inside their homes.
