CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police have released the names of three people who were killed in two separate shootings in Charlotte late Tuesday night.

The first shooting happened around 11:05 p.m. on Eastwycke Place Drive in east Charlotte, where a man, identified by police as 29-year-old David Sean Lindsay, was killed.

Police say they responded to a 911 call about the shooting and found Lindsay with a gunshot wound sitting in a car parked in a yard. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lindsay's family says he was a well-known barber in Charlotte that worked at No Grease Barber. Lindsay's sister says her brother cut hair of politicians, athletes, and celebrities.

The No Grease Barber on West Trade Street, where Lindsay worked, was closed Wednesday because of the shooting.

"I have been in Charlotte for eleven years. What makes Charlotte, Charlotte for me? He played a part in that. David, he was my friend," said Bobby Brown, a client of Lindsay's for ten years. "We lost a great man, a beautiful man, a man that left his fingerprint on this earth."

Police have not made any arrests in the case and do not know what caused the shooting.

Less than 30 minutes after Lindsay was shot, just before 11:30 p.m., officers were called to a shooting in the 400 block of Hilo Drive, at the Edge at Noda Apartments. Officers said they arrived to find two men shot near the apartments.

One victim was in the stairwell of the apartments and the other was just inside a doorway. Those men were later identified as 29-year-old Jared Chatman and 30-year-old Sanchez McClure.

"He was just in the best mood this past week, talking to him. He was feeling so good and the fact that this happened so suddenly - it took a cut into a lot of our lives," said Josh Chatman, Jared Chatman's younger brother. "Just an amazing person. No one is perfect. I do not know what he got into that could have happened to get himself killed."

Based off of evidence located at the scene by detectives, investigators believe the incident appears to be drug-related.

Earlier this year, CMPD launched an initiative called "Operation Avalanche" to target specific high crime areas. These shootings occurred in that area of Northeast Charlotte. Police will continue to work with businesses and owners of housing complexes in that area.

"They (The Edge at NoDa Apt.) were very engaged. They were connected to their coordinators in that division and there has been a lot of conversation. They have not had a lot of issues in that complex so this is a wake-up call," said CMPD Chief Kerr Putney.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a detective or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. You can also visit the Crime Stoppers mobile app website at
