CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Photos of a man wanted in last month's shooting outside Charlotte's Midnight Diner were released Wednesday. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say they were called to the parking lot outside the diner, on E Carson Boulevard at S Tryon Street, where a man had been shot. It happened July 31 around 5:30 a.m.

Wednesday, CMPD tweeted a photo of a man wanted in the shooting and the vehicle they believe he fled in.

Police say the victim and shooter got into a brief struggle following an altercation. The victim started to run off when the shooter pulled a handgun and shot him multiple times, police say.

A diner patron drove the victim to Novant Health Presbyterian for treatment.

Police describe the man wanted as a thin black male with a goatee and short dreads. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt.

The vehicle being sought is described as a black four-door sedan with bright headlights and a left front tire that appears to be a spare.  

Police don't believe the two knew each other. 

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 704-336-5727 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
