Man dies at hospital following shooting in east Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The person who was rushed to the hospital after a shooting in an east Charlotte neighborhood Saturday night has died.

The victim was identified Sunday morning as Deontray Love, 19.

Police say the shooting that happened after 8 p.m. near the intersection of Snow Lane and Idlewild Road resulted from an argument at a nearby store.

CMPD said that Love got into a fight with a group of people he knew at the Fast Mart on Lawyers Road. The altercation continued onto Idlewild Rd before Baxter shot the victim and ran from the scene.

Medic said that Love was taken to the hospital with serious injuries shortly after the call. Police said just after 9 p.m. he had been pronounced deceased.

This is an ongoing, active investigation. As further information develops it will be released by CMPD Public Affairs.
