Investigators have charged a 54-year-old man in a fatal shooting Friday night in southeast Charlotte.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the suspect, James Stanley Daye, and the victim, 37-year-old Walter Lee Gregory, were involved in an ongoing dispute.
Responding to a report of an assault about 10:15 p.m. Friday, police went to Hunting Ridge Lane, just off Idlewild Road. There, officers found Gregory suffering from a gunshot wound, police said.
Paramedics pronounced him dead just before 10:30 p.m., police said.
Detectives canvassed the neighborhood to find any potential witnesses, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Vice and Gang Unit assisted in the investigation.
Then, after identifying Daye as the suspect in the killing, homicide detectives signed warrants for his arrest, police said. Officers arrested him Saturday morning on Glenfiddich Drive. That's off The Plaza in northeast Charlotte, about six miles north of the homicide scene.
Daye, of Charlotte, was being held in Mecklenburg jail Saturday without bond.
Police said Daye and Gregory knew each other. They didn't elaborate on the nature of the dispute between them.
Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call homicide detectives at 704-432-TIPS or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
