CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Homicide Unit have arrested a suspect in connection with a North Charlotte shooting, which injured three people Sunday morning.
On November 18, 2012, at about 2:30 a.m., officers in the North Division responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call for service near the intersection of Old Plank Road and Almore Drive. When officers arrived, they located a male suffering from an apparent gun shot wound. The victim was transported to the hospital. A short time later, two more victims were brought to the hospital, also suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims sustained non-life threatening injuries.
