Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting in the Sedgefield community off South Boulevard as Charles Michael Middleton, 62.
The shooting occurred early Friday. Police were sent to a duplex in the 300 block of Elmhurst Road around 5:45 a.m. after receiving a report of shots fired. Once there, police found Middleton with a fatal gunshot wound.
No arrests had been made late Friday.
Crime scene tape was around two buildings of duplexes, and more than two dozen officers were at the scene.
A neighbor who lives four houses away from where the victim was found said he heard banging sounds around 5:30 a.m. Friday, but thought the noise was coming from construction. He said he later realized that a shooting had occurred when he saw police cars.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly with a homicide detective. You also can call CrimeStoppers at 704-334-1600. Observer photographer Davie Hinshaw contributed.
