CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A man accused of murdering his girlfriend and carjacking another person this week has his bond set at $450,000 for the charges other than the murder charge.

It appears that there is no bond for the murder charge against Jamarr Springs, who is suspected by police in the fatal shooting on Wednesday night in west Charlotte.

Once police arrived at the shooting scene around 10:30 pm, they found 28-year-old Pamela Ann Garmon dead from a gunshot wound at 6221 Summerour Place .

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, a neighbor told police the suspect, Jamarr Springs, 28, fled the scene and that he was possibly armed with a rifle.

Around 10:41 p.m., police were called to a carjacking which occurred in the parking lot of Northlake Mall near TGI Friday restaurant.

According to police, the suspect in the carjacking matched the description of the shooting suspect.

The suspect forced the driver out of his vehicle but made the passenger remain in the car.  

The passenger was released a short time later unharmed near the intersection of Sam Furr and Statesville Roads in Huntersville.

The suspect, who police identified as Springs, fled on foot down Sam Furr Road.  Police set up a perimeter and apprehended him a short time later.  Officials say Springs removed most of his clothing and was wearing only his underwear.

Springs and Garmon knew one another and the shooting might have been the result of a domestic dispute, police said.

Springs has been charged with Murder, Attempted Armed Robbery (two counts), Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill (2 counts), Armed Robbery and First-Degree Kidnapping.  He is being held at the Mecklenburg County Jail.

The Domestic Violence Awareness Council of Mecklenburg County plans to hold a march on Thursday, December 9 in memory of Garmon.  Starting at 12:15 p.m., the group will march from Trade and Tryon Streets to the police department at 601 E. Trade Street.  There, they will place a purple ribbon on a tree in memory of Garmon.
