CORNELIUS, NC (WBTV) - A second Charlotte man is facing charges for murder, kidnapping and robbery after police found a body at a home early Thursday morning.

Cornelius police were called to a home along the 20200 block of North Main Street to the report of shots fired Wednesday night around 11:53 p.m. Officers arrived on scene and located one victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

That man was later identified as Wilfred Arnold.

The duplex is just yards away from the Food Lion parking lot, what residents in the past have called a very safe and quiet neighborhood.

Officers said just before midnight, several people showed up in front of the house, pulled out guns, and opened fire.

On Friday, Cornelius police announced they had arrested Jay Brett Wallace, of Charlotte, for the death of Wilfred Arnold.

Wallace is the second man arrested in connection with the murder.  Bernard Donnie Fuller, of Charlotte, was arrested by police on Thursday.

Both men have been charged with Murder, five counts of kidnapping and one count of Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon.

Cornelius Police are asking anyone with information to contact Detectives at (704)892-7773.  You can remain anonymous.
