CMPD Investigating Shots Fired into Home Where Intruder was Killed

From, December 26, 2014

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating after shots were fired Wednesday into a house near Mint Hill where a 14-year-old shot and killed an intruder last week.

Around 3:15 a.m., police answered a call saying someone had fired shots at the house on Rolling Fields Road. No one was hurt and minor damage was done.

Early Wednesday morning, December 24, 2014, the house’s residents were awakened by gunfire. The 14-year-old was sleeping on a couch about 15 feet away from the window where the shots entered. He went to wake his grandparents as soon as he realized what was happening, he said. The shots soon subsided.

The family feels the shots were “more than likely retaliation” for last week’s encounter at the home that left an intruder dead.

Last Tuesday, the 14-year-old was home with his 73-year-old grandmother when they heard someone breaking into the house through a back window. In the 911 call, the 14 year old’s grandmother can be heard describing how her grandson told the intruder to leave and fatally shooting him when he did not.

The intruder was identified as Isai Delcid, 18. His brother Carlos Delcid was there too but ran from the scene. He has since been jailed and charged with first-degree burglary.

It is likely that whoever fired at the home pulled off of Highway 218 behind the house and shot from the backyard.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police remained on the scene Wednesday afternoon. No arrests have been made.

Police have said last week’s shooting was justified, and the 14-year-old has not been charged with a crime as the teenager was trying to protect himself and his grandmother.
