A suspect in a Wednesday shooting that happened in a Concord grocery store parking lot was later taken into custody with the help of his mother, according to police.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Food Lion on Branchview Drive NE. Investigators said the shooting happened during a drug-related transaction.

The victim, who showed up a short time later at CMC Southeast, was shot in the abdomen and is expected to be OK.

Police said they quickly developed a suspect, identified Thursday as 21-year-old Javonte Dequarius McRavin, and went to his home on Corban Avenue, but he wouldn't come outside.

Officers said the negotiations came close to becoming a tactical situation until they were able to make contact with the McRavin's mother.

After talking to his mom, he surrendered peacefully.

McRavin was charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

The incident is still under investigation.
