Huntersville Residents on Edge as Search Continues for Murder Suspects
CHARLOTTE, NC-- One day after a deadly shooting happened inside of a Huntersville apartment complex, the police caution tape is gone and lots of questions remain unanswered. Wednesday evening, 19-year-old Peter Jordan was shot and killed outside of apartment G at the Landings at Northcross apartments located off Sam Furr Road near I-77 and Birkdale Village.
Huntersville Police say Jordan did not live at the complex, and that they are searching for suspects based on eyewitness accounts from area residents. "They observed a black Chevrolet Impala occupied by three to four black males leaving the area at a high rate of speed," says Capt. Kevin Johnston with the Huntersville Police Department.
As the search for the suspects continues, residents living in nearby apartments recall a frightening evening that has rattled their community. One woman we spoke with says she is too nervous to leave her apartment. Another resident says she is walking her dog earlier than usual to avoid being out after dark. She says her heart goes out to Jordan's family.
Jordan's family members posted on facebook that his funeral is taking place on Sunday at the Raymer-Kepner Funeral Home in Huntersville.
