CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department continues to investigate an early morning shooting that killed a teenager.
Officers responded to the 1300 block of Lasalle Street around 4 a.m. Saturday for a call regarding assault with a deadly weapon, but they didn't find anyone.
A short time later, Stanley Naquon Taylor, 17, was found near Stateville Avenue near I-85 -- he'd been shot. Witnesses had driven Taylor away from the location and flagged down Medic for help, officials said.
He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
According to Mecklenburg County records, Taylor was arrested in March of 2012 for misdemeanor drug possession, and again in July of this year for drug possession.
Anyone with information should call 704-432-TIPS.
