First Charlotte Homicide of 2017 Has Just Been Reported


CMPD is now investigating a homicide on the East Side of Charlotte. 

At Approximately 12:05 am this morning, a call came in about a shooting on the fourth floor of an apartment complex on Monroe Road. The shooter ran away on foot and the man who was shot was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.


CMPD officers spend several hours this morning interviewing residents of the apartment complex in an attempt to find the shooter. They asked residents of the apartment complex and several locals who walked near the scene if they had heard or seen anything out of place last night.

Members of the CMPD Homicide Unit now think that this was not a random murder, but rather the victim knew the suspect and suspect there may have been some premeditated intent. 

Police are asking the public to call Crime Stoppers if they have any information regarding the case, or if they heard or saw anything out of the ordinary last night on Monroe Rd.

Please call 704-432-TIPS to speak with a detective about the case.

This is currently an ongoing investigation, we will update this article as we find out new information.
