=========================================================================

Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Homicide/ADW Unit are conducting a shooting investigation in the 100 block of S. Brevard Street in the Central Division.  The call for service came in at 3:36 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. 

Central Division patrol officers responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call for service.  Upon arrival officers located a male lying in a parking lot suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.  The male was transported by Medic to Carolinas Medical Center with serious injuries. 

G4S with Transit Police located and detained a possible suspect in the shooting nearby.  Homicide/ADW Unit detectives are currently interviewing the subject to determine their involvement. 

At this time it appears that a dispute between known subjects led to the shooting and this was not a random act of violence.

Detectives with the Homicide/ADW Unit are canvassing the area to determine whether there are any additional witnesses to this incident. 

Crime Scene Search responded to the call for service to process the scene and collect physical evidence.  Representatives of the Real Time Crime responded to the scene. 

This is an ongoing, active investigation.  As further information develops it will be released by CMPD Public Affairs.
