CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Police have made a second arrest in a shooting that took place at a home in northwest Charlotte early Friday morning. 

Homicide Units identified Terry Ingram Clay, 22, as a potential suspect in the murder of 42-year-old Davis Wayne Walthall. He was arrested Thursday on unrelated charges and taken to Police Headquarters to be interviewed.

As a result of the information gathered during the interview, detectives were able to obtain a murder warrant against him.

Two people are now in police custody after police say they killed a man in west Charlotte.

The first suspect, 21-year-old Jacoby Delanio Chambers, was taken into custody early Saturday morning. 

Chambers is currently in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg County jail on charges of murder.

On Friday, police say they arrested Terry Ingram Clay, 23, on Thursday evening as a second suspect in the murder.

Clay is also charged with murder.

The murder, which happened at a home on the 1600 block of Maribel Avenue, was investigated as a home invasion and murder, police said.

Davis Wayne Walthall, 42, was killed inside his home.

Officers on the scene told WBTV that it appeared three suspects entered the home and a struggle ensued. That, they said, was when Walthall was shot. 

Police also said there were other people inside the home who were sleeping at the time of the shooting.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.  Detective J. Carter is the lead detective assigned to the case.  In addition, you may also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
