CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Police are investigating a deadly shooting at a northwest Charlotte apartment complex on Thursday morning.

The shooting happened on Park Fairfax Drive, in the Scarlet Pointe Apartments just off Freedom Drive, shortly after 5:30 a.m., the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said.

Police said a man was found at the apartments with multiple gunshot wounds. He died at the scene and was later identified by authorities as 24-year-old Kwandarrius De’Markeith Montaviu Howze.

No arrests have yet been made in the case.

CMPD Major Ryan Butler said the crime happened at a multi-family complex when people were starting to get up and get ready for work.

“There’s a greater likelihood that somebody heard or saw something that would be out of their normal routine,” Butler said. “Somebody that is not normally here, someone who doesn’t usually come visit. Those small things - ‘I saw something, I saw a person, I saw a car’ - those small pieces of information for our homicide detectives can make an incredible amount of difference in being able to bring justice to this family and to this community.”

Anyone with information regarding the case should contact Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
