CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Police have identified the man who was killed in a shooting late Wednesday night in southeast Charlotte.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, officers were called for a report of shots fired in the parking lot of the Stonehaven East apartment complex on Pineburr Road, which is near Thermal Road, around 11 p.m.

When officers arrived, they said they found a victim with multiple gunshot wounds. That person was pronounced dead on the scene.

Authorities identified him as 37-year-old Michael Elite White.

“This was very intentional,” CMPD Capt. Ryan Jackson said. “This victim was killed on purpose. There was numerous shell casings located in the parking lot.”
