Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have arrested a second man in connection with the fatal shooting of a man Wednesday in a north Charlotte neighborhood.
On Saturday, CMPD arrested Trellis Tremayne Rogers, 17, and charged him with murder and two counts of armed robbery in connection with the shooting death of Zachary Jamal Pittman, 25.
Last week, police arrested Brandon Newkirk, 20, and charged him with the same things.
Police said earlier that Newkirk and Pittman had arranged a drug deal before the shooting.
The shooting was reported about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, and police said Pittman’s body was found in the 10000 block of English Setter Drive.
Police say they were called about shots being fired at Yellow Rose Lane and Terrier Way, in a neighborhood near Eastfield and Browne roads. A short time later, police got another call about a suspicious person nearby on English Setter Drive.
Investigators said early Thursday morning they believe some sort of dispute happened at Yellow Rose Lane and Terrier Way, and Pittman ran to English Setter Drive before collapsing.
Detectives asked anyone with more information in the case is asked to call detectives at 704-432-TIPS.
