Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Homicide Unit and ADW Unit are conducting a homicide investigation at 1736 Forest Side Lane in the University City Division. The call for service came in at 12:53 a.m., on Friday, April 27, 2012. The victims have yet to be positively identified.
University City Division patrol officers responded to an ADW call in reference to two people shot inside the above listed residence. When officers arrived on the scene, they found two males inside the residence suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The victims were pronounced deceased on scene. A male and a female stated that they and the two victims were inside the residence when two other subjects showed up at the door. The shooting took place shortly after these two subjects were allowed inside. This is not a random act of violence, as the victims and the suspects are known to each other.
Detectives with the Homicide Unit and ADW Unit are canvassing the neighborhood to determine whether there are additional witnesses to this incident. The investigation is in its early stages. As additional information develops, it will be released by CMPD Public Affairs.
Crime Scene Search responded to the call for service to process the scene and collect physical evidence. Representatives of the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Homicide Prosecution Team responded to the scene as well as Detectives with the Vice & Narcotics Unit and the Gang Unit.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective. Detective Jolly is the lead detective assigned to the case. In addition, you may also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. For additional information, reference CMPD complaint number 2012-0427-005301.
