CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have classified a deadly shooting last month at an apartment in north Charlotte as justified homicide.

Police were called just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 29, to the 2900 block of Westbury Lake Drive, close to W.T. Harris Boulevard.

When they arrived, they found Jonathan Luke Edouarzin with a serious gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Medic.

Police say the only suspect was still at the scene and cooperated with them, and that they aren’t looking for anyone else at this time.

CMPD officials provided an update on the case Friday morning. They said the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office has consulted with the department’s homicide unit and concurs with the detectives’ decision not to charge anyone in the case.
