Man Shot at Apartment Complex Near Monroe Road


From The Charlotte Observer by Cleve R. Wootson Jr., August 7, 2013

A man was taken to the hospital after being shot at an apartment complex near Monroe Road.

Police haven’t released the man’s name or a narrative of what they believe led to the shooting. The shooting happened around 8:15 a.m. at the Rose Garden apartments on McAlway Road near Wendover Road.

A neighbor who declined to give her name said the man had been smoking a cigarette when he was shot near a Dumpster at the back of the complex.

Roberto Diaz, who was on his way to work, said he didn’t hear a gunshot, but was surprised at the police activity so close to his home.

“I’ve lived here one year, and this is the first time I heard something like this,” he said.

Police said the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening. Officers said they’re still looking for a suspect.
