Police have charged a Charlotte man in connection with a Monday shooting at the N.C. Music Factory.
Harold Radford Porter, 32, was arrested Tuesday morning after police surrounded a residence on Bon-Rea Drive in south Charlotte.
Police said they arrested Porter without incident. About a half-dozen marked and unmarked Charlotte-Mecklenburg police cars descended about 8 a.m. on a house in the 3900 block of Bon-Rea Drive, in a community off Rea Road.
One neighbor said it appeared as if members of CMPDs SWAT unit were involved in the incident. Another neighbor reported seeing police take one person into custody. Officer Keith Trietley, a spokesman for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, said officers were in the area looked for what he described as a wanted person.
The neighbor said she was told police were looking for a man wanted in connection with a shooting outside a club at the NC Music Factory in north Charlotte.
That turned out to be the case. Porter is suspected of shooting 29-year-old Brian Anthony Bentley in the stomach in the parking lot near club Label around 2:45 a.m. Monday.
Bentley was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and is expected to recover. Initial reports said the shooting occurred after an argument broke out between the two men.
Porter was in custody at the Mecklenburg County jail charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
His bond is set at $28,000.
