CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they’ve arrested a suspect in a deadly shooting in east Charlotte Sunday night.

The incident happened at 5805 Hunting Ridge Lane around 10:00 Sunday night.  Police tell NewsChannel 36 they found a man dead from a gunshot wound at an apartment complex.

The suspect and the victim knew one another, and this is not a random act of violence, according to police.

Police have identified the man, but are not yet releasing his name.

Detectives are trying to determine if anyone heard or saw anything in the moments leading up to the shooting.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.
