CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte police say they've arrested two suspects accused of shooting and killing another man at a local Food Lion store Wednesday night.

CMPD says they were called to the store along Albemarle Road near Harrisburg Road just after 8:30 p.m. They found the victim, a 28-year-old man, with an apparent gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital via Medic, but passed away there. His family has been notified of his death.

Two men, ages 22 and 23, were identified as suspects and then interviewed by detectives after being treated at a hospital. CMPD says both men were transferred into the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office and has since been charged with murder.

Note: WCNC instituted a new policy in March 2021 regarding the broadcast or posting of mugshots.

WCNC will only air or post a mugshot if the person has been formally charged with a crime and in a few other cases. The exceptions include: If it appears the person could be a danger to themselves or others or if they are wanted by authorities; to differentiate between people with a common name; if the photos could encourage more victims to come forward. The news-editorial leadership may also decide to use a mugshot based on the severity of the crime(s) committed and/or the level of public interest in the crime and ensuing criminal proceedings.
