CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man was shot and killed outside a McDonald's in southwest Charlotte Monday night, police said.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police responded to a reported shooting at the McDonald's on South Boulevard near East Arrowood Road around 8:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they found a man on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. CMPD has not released his name at this time.
The parking lot was blocked off as CMPD's crime scene unit investigated the scene and interviewed potential witnesses.
A woman told WCNC Charlotte she was next door when she heard a gunshot. The woman then saw a man lying on the ground with another man standing next to him.
CMPD officers at the scene wouldn't comment on whether a McDonald's employee was involved or if the suspect and victim knew each other. Investigators did say the shooting was the result of a fight outside the restaurant.
Police are not looking for a person of interest, but they do ask witnesses to call Crime Stoppers to share any information. Witnesses can call 704-432-TIPS to speak directly with homicide detectives. Anonymous calls may also be made to Charlotte Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
