CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police have released the names of four men charged in a shooting at a historically black university in Charlotte where one student was hurt.

Johnson C. Smith University President Ronald Carter said four men who were not students were turned away from an end-of-the-year party but returned early Sunday and fired into the air.

A freshman was hit in the shoulder. His injuries were not considered life-threatening. His name has not been released.

Police told local media that 21-one-year-old Everett Phifer faces assault and weapons charges.

Twenty-one-year-old Elijah Craig and 19-year-old Juan Leon also face weapons charges.

Twenty-one-year-old Shalique Edmond is charged with possession of marijuana and failure to stop for police.

It was not clear if the men have lawyers to comment on the charges.
