CMPD Investigating Fatal Shooting in Sedgefield

From The Charlote Observer By April Bethea, January 25, 2013

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating a fatal shooting early Friday in the Sedgefield community.

Police were sent to a duplex in the 300 block of Elmhurst Road around 5:45 a.m. after receiving a report of shots being fired. Once there, police found a male victim with a fatal gunshot wound. His name has not yet been released, pending notification of his family.

No arrests in the case have been announced yet.

Crime scene tape was around two buildings of duplexes, and more than two dozen officers were visible near the scene. Representatives from the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s homicide team also were among those at the scene.

A neighbor who lives four houses away from where the victim was found said he heard several banging sounds around 5:30 a.m. Friday, but thought the noises was coming from construction. He said he later realized that a shooting had occurred when he saw police cars.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly with a homicide detective. You can also call CrimeStoppers at 704-334-1600.
