CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Two murder suspects used Lynx Light Rail line to getaway from a crime scene, according to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.
WBTV obtained a search warrant about the robbery and murder of 65 year old Robert Heym Tuesday night.
In the warrant, police say Stacey Dejon Brown, 20, and Rodderick Derrick Crawford, 21 tried to rob and then shot Heym was shot just after 9:00 p.m. Tuesday on Conway Avenue and Blackthorne Lane. That's off Scaleybark Road near South Boulevard.
Police tracked Brown and Crawford down with the help of Brown's girlfriend, according to the warrant.
She told police she'd given Brown her brown backpack and saw him put the murder weapon, a sawed off shotgun, inside.
The warrant also said she also told detectives Brown had to "stash the backpack on 'the Southside' after trying to rob someone". Brown also "said he shot the guy" after the victim put up a fight and "both [suspects] then took the light rail back to the transit center."
The warrant also details how the clothing the suspects were wearing at that the backpack was found just feet away from the victim.
The victim's cell phone was found near the Scaleybark light rail station on South Boulevard.
WBTV talked to riders there Friday night who said the thought of the light rail being used as the getaway transportation had them on alert.
"I'm just concerned," said Keva Phillips, a regular rider. "What if it happens again?"
Phillips also said it just goes to show you never know who you're riding next to.
"It makes you wonder and question and look and got my 'Perry Mason' radar on so I can figure out who's scoping and who's doing what now," she said.
Detectives say officers were patrolling the area near the murder because there has been an uptick in robberies targeting Hispanic men in the last month.
Officers on patrol heard gunshots from about a block away and found the man with a gunshot wound. Heym was a white man and there is no indication his death was connected to the recent crimes in that area.
Police are asking that anyone who has additional information about this case to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
