CMPD looking for person involved in early morning car crash that led to shooting

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police are looking for two people after Hansie Leon Hunter, 45, was shot and injured when a car crash led to an argument in Charlotte early Saturday morning.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the incident happened in southeast Charlotte at the 4200 block of Monroe Road.

On Saturday, around 2:30 a.m., Hunter says he was attempting to make a left turn into a parking lot when a black Chevrolet Camaro with black rims hit the back of his car.

Hunter said he pulled over and the Camaro came back to where he was. The two drivers got into an argument, then the suspect shot Hunter.

“I know he’s strong,” said Marques Gomillion, nephew of Hansie Hunter.

Hunter was transported to the hospital after the shooting with non-life-threatening injuries.

“He told me he was going to be ok, but he wasn’t going to be able to walk for a while,” said Gomillion. “So he was going to need a designated driver, which is me.”

The suspect in this shooting is described as a young black male with dreadlocks. The dreadlocks had braids in them and they were pulled back behind his head.

This is still an active and ongoing investigation, so anyone who has information about the identity of either the driver, passenger or their whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
