On September 3, 2021 a shooting erupted moments before the end of a football game at Julius L. Chambers High School in Charlotte, NC. Several shots were fired in close proximity to the game in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter. 

The shots were fired from a passing vehicle into the crowd. The shots sent people running and ducking for cover. No one was reported shot. No arrests were made. 

Julius L. Chambers High School is formerly known as Vance High School, but the school name was changed in 2021 due to the Vance name coming from a former slave owner. 

Many former slave owners have had their names pulled from the names of buildings, schools, and businesses after the George Floyd murder in 2020.
