From wsoctv.com, February 27, 2019

Two people have been charged in connection to the triple shooting in a west Charlotte neighborhood Wednesday night, February 27, 2019.

Furqan Grice and Anthony Goodson have been charged in connection to the triple shooting that killed Ibn Marshall and Anu’bius Smith and injured a third victim.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Grandin Road, officers arrived on the scene and found a male victim with an apparent gunshot wound off of W. Morehead Street. Two other male victims were found inside of a vehicle two blocks away, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say.

All three were taken to the hospital where the two victims were pronounced dead.

 

As a result of an investigation, warrants were obtained for the arrest of Grice and Goodson. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say they interviewed and arrested Grice Thursday. Goodson was arrested Friday morning by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team (VCAT).

 

On Thursday night, police released 911 calls from the incident where a caller stated that she heard three or four gunshots in a row. The caller said she heard two more gunshots while she was on the phone with police.

 

“Pretty sure we heard gunshots and there’s somebody outside like laying on their horn,” the caller stated.

 

The caller went on to describe a person at the scene and said she saw the person throw a gun into a trash can.

An initial investigation revealed two of the victims remained inside of the vehicle during the shooting, while the third victim ran to a parking lot down the street for help, officials say.

Police also say they found two guns and some marijuana on the scene that was later seized.

 

Police were searching the area for witnesses to the incident.

 

This remains an active investigation and no further information has been released at this time. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
