Police said information and evidence gathered at the scene of the triple shooting that left one person dead and two others seriously injured led them to search for David Mark Fields, 44.

Police said they believe Fields shot Marcia Marie Winningham, 43, and two others at about 1:30 a.m. Friday on Filbert Lane in east Charlotte.

A neighbor told Eyewitness News she heard someone screaming for help while standing in the street in front of her house.

“He’s just screaming, ‘Officer, over here, I’ve been shot, I’ve been shot,’ And then just, there’s a lot of cops coming in, two fire trucks, ambulances and the whole street was just covered,” said Yelena Kandelya.

Winningham died at the hospital. The other two victims, 46-year-old Raemona Winningham and 51-year-old Anthony Obee, are both in critical condition.

Officers said they quickly notified the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team after obtaining a warrant for Fields. With the help of Virginia State Police, officers were able to find and arrest Fields, who was driving near Richmond, Va.

Fields is being held in a Virginia jail. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police detectives are going to Virginia to interview the suspect and process his vehicle.

Fields is charged with murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill inflicting serious injuries.

Detectives said they believe the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute. They have not said what the relationship was between Fields and Marcia Winningham.

It’s also not clear what Fields’ relationship is to the two others he is accused of shooting.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call 704-432-TIPS.
