Man pleads guilty to murder in 2010 party shooting

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A Charlotte man has pled guilty to murder charges after police say he was connected to a double shooting at a 2010 party in north Charlotte.

Vernon Carlton Davis was 21-years-old when he was arrested in September 2010 after police say he shot two men near the intersection of Grimes Street and Norris Avenue.

When police arrived on scene, officers say a large crowd was breaking up from a party along the 2700 block of Grimes Street. A few minutes later, officers were informed that two people were shot and drove themselves to Carolinas Medical Center.

Jonathan Jackson, 24, was shot in the chest and died about seven hours later at the hospital, police said. Another man was shot in the leg.

Police believe Davis shot Jackson over an argument that had occurred at a party earlier in the evening.

Davis pled guilty on Monday to second degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

He was sentenced to 160-201 months in prison for the murder offense and an additional 26-41 months in prison for the assault offense.

The sentences will run consecutively for a total of 186-242 months in prison.
