Suspect Remains at Large in Charlotte Fatal Club Shooting Case


From The Charlotte Observer By Elisabeth Arriero, June 24, 2013

Police continued to search for the person who fatally shot a 22-year-old man early Sunday at an Independence Boulevard club, said Charlotte Mecklenburg Police spokesman Keith Trietley.

“Case is still an ongoing investigation,” Trietley said in an email.

Police responded to the Skandalos club, located at 5317 E. Independence Blvd., around 2:05 a.m. Sunday to an assault with a deadly weapon call with injuries.

When they arrived, they found Alejandro Sebastian Alvarez, 22, laying in the club’s parking lot and suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Alvarez was pronounced dead at the scene by Medic.

Police believe that some type of altercation happened in the parking lot between several people, which led to the shooting.

Detectives are looking for a dark-colored Honda vehicle in connection to the shooting.

Crime Scene Search responded to collect evidence at the scene. Representatives with the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Homicide Prosecution Team, Real Time Crime Center, Mecklenburg County ABC Unit and the Vice and Gang Unit also responded.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-8477 (TIPS) and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.
