CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man was shot in north Charlotte Friday night, and a male suspect was taken into custody, according to police.
It happened after 8 p.m. in the 4600 block of Gibbons Link Rd. The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries where he later died from his injuries.
The victim was identified as 21-year-old Demarcus McManus.
Police said, they responded to a service call of an assault with a deadly weapon and when they arrived they found McManus in the roadway with apparent gunshot wounds.
According to officers, around 8:10 p.m. McManus smashed the windows of an unoccupied vehicle on Nathan Drive, then approached a female sitting in a different vehicle which was parked in a driveway on Gibbons Link Road and punched her in the face without provocation.
The female informed police that she did not know McManus and the assault was unprovoked.
McManus then continued down Gibbons Link Road where the male suspect drove up in a car. CMPD said as the suspect was driving past, McManus threw himself on to the hood of the suspect's car, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.
