Victim Identified In NW CLT Murder

Tonight we know the name of a man killed in Northwest Charlotte this morning.

Fredrick Butler was found shot several times when officers arrived at his home on Helms Road a little after 5 this morning. He died at the scene.

We spoke with Butler’s sister who says his teenage son and the boy’s mother also lived at the home.

“I ‘m glad they didn’t hurt my nephew or his mother. It could have been much worse. I lost my brother in this tragic incident but it could have definitely been worse,” said Laterice Butler

This is the 13th homicide in Charlotte this year.
