CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A man shot to death at a hotel in southwest Charlotte Monday night was one of the suspects in a robbery and shooting which resulted in the death of a Union County teacher, according to a police source.

The body of 40-year-old Louis Henry Fuqua was found late Monday night at the Econo Lodge, along the 500 block of Clanton Road, after officers responded to a call for shots fired.

According to a police source, Fuqua was one of the suspects in the robbery and shooting of Union County teacher Ruijuan Guo.

Guo, 33, was a teacher at Kensington Elementary School in Waxhaw, where she taught Mandarin.

Police say she was shot around 11:30 p.m. Friday on East Park Avenue during an attempted robbery. She died Wednesday morning at Carolinas Medical Center.

According to a police report released Monday morning, Guo’s boyfriend told police they were attempting to get into a car with another friend when someone approached their car. Guo's boyfriend said that person pulled a gun and demanded his wallet.

The boyfriend told police "he could not get his wallet out of his pocket fast enough, so the suspect shot his girlfriend in the head and then ran off."

Police said the investigation is ongoing, but have not released a description of a suspect.

WBTV's source said Fugua was probably killed by other suspects "to keep him from talking to police."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a detective, or call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
