CMPD / Shooting Suspect Standoff Ends Peacefully

By Steve Lyttle / Charlotte Observer – March 2, 2011

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a brief standoff ended peacefully overnight after a shooting that left one man injured.

According to police, two men got into an argument on Carlyle Drive in west Charlotte about midnight. As one man drove off, someone fired a shot into the back of his truck, striking the driver in the shoulder.

The injured man told police where they could find the person who shot him, and officers went to a house on nearby Highland Street, off Wilkinson Boulevard, a block west of Camp Greene Street.

Police say the man at the house would not come out initially, but the standoff ended with police calling the man and convincing him to surrender and come out. The man was taken in for questioning.

The victim’s injury was not life-threatening, police say.
