Mccorey was shot at Mooney’s Lounge on North Graham Street around 4 a.m. before crashing his car into a fire station garage door on June 12.

Officers say the victim, later identified as Mccorey, was shot multiple times and drove himself to Charlotte Fire Department Station 11, located less than a mile away on West 28th Street for medical attention.

As a result of continued investigation, Ardrey was identified as a suspect in this case, and a warrant for murder was issued for his arrest. Police say Ardrey should be considered armed and dangerous.
