Spate of Deadly Shootings in Charlotte Continues

From, September 10, 2015

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating a fatal shooting in Northwest Charlotte on September 10, 2015.

Thursday afternoon around 3:45, officers were called to a shooting in the 300 block of Oregon Street.

When officers arrived on the scene, one man was found deceased of a gunshot wound. The victim has been identified as Anthony Tyrone Barbour, 42.

CMPD says their preliminary investigation indicates the shooter and the Barbour were involved in an altercation that led to the shooting.

Police say this shooting does not appear to be connected to any of the multiple shootings that occurred over Labor Day weekend, despite the fact that the scene is just a mile away from where the shooting on Hoskins Road occurred.

NBC Charlotte’s crew on scene says investigators are searching for a red Chevy Impala in connection with this case.
