CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A man was arrested in connection to a double shooting in southwest Charlotte that left 23-year-old Terrence White dead and a woman in the hospital.

Canell Rayshaun Johnson was arrested Thursday and charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Just after midnight on Wednesday, officers responded to an assault call in the 300 block of Archdale Drive where they found the woman suffering from a gunshot wound. Medic took her to Carolinas Medical Center with minor injuries. Her name has not been released.

A short time later, officers responded to an assault call on Coolbrook Court, where they found a man, later identified as White, dead inside a home. Police said he had been shot.
