CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police responded to a deadly shooting scene in east Charlotte Tuesday.

It happened around 10 p.m. in the 7100 block of Barrington Drive.

Investigators say Romon Antonio Williams was found dead of a gunshot wound inside an apartment in the Hampton Commons complex.

This was a drug related incident, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, and not a random act of violence. The investigation is in its early stages.

Officers tell NBC Charlotte that one other person was inside of the apartment when they arrived. They are speaking to that person.

There is no word yet on a suspect.
 
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.
