CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Two suspects were arrested Monday in a fatal shooting at about 4 p.m. at Farm Pond Lane and Albemarle Road in east Charlotte.
Police identified the victim late Monday as Monte Jarron Gay, 21.
Two 19-year-olds – Terrence Parker and Brenton Samuels – are charged with murder in Gay’s death. Officers arrested Parker at a motel on Independence Boulevard. Samuels was arrested in Mint Hill.
Police said they responded to an assault-with-a-deadly-weapon call at 3:59 p.m. and found Gay. Paramedics took the wounded man to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The homicide is the second killing Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have investigated this year, after a 24-year low in reported homicides in 2012.
