CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Residents from the Olde Savannah neighborhood in East Charlotte held an emergency crime meeting Monday night, to talk about the city's first murder of the year.
About 40 residents met at Cornerstone Baptist Church to talk crime prevention strategy. Benjamin Sky McDaniel, 19, was shot and killed. Jerik Simmons, 21, was also shot but survived.
"We were there right after it happened. We're talking to people standing right there," said neighbor Amy Roland, who was at the crime meeting.
Police arrested Antonio "Tony" Farrar, 20, and Dontae Torrance, 19, and charged them with murder. Investigators tell WBTV the four men were involved in a drug deal.
Though McDaniel and Simmons collapsed on Goldfields Drive, several witnesses say the two men were shot on Olde Savannah and ran through the woods to Goldfields Drive, where they collapsed. The two neighborhoods are connected.
CMPD officers at Monday's meeting told residents it is better to call 911 too much, then not call at all.
"I know it happens every day all over the place but when it happens in your backyard you get a little bit more concerned," said neighbor Jim Brendle.
Torrance was arrested the next day. He is charged with Murder, Attempted Murder, Conspiracy, and Obtaining Property by False Pretense.
Farrar turned himself in Sunday. He is charged with Murder, Attempted Murder, and Conspiracy.
