CMPD arrests fourth suspect in west Charlotte shooting

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have arrested a fourth suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of west Charlotte resident Ronny Steele.

James Maurieo Hunter, 32, was arrested in Florence County, S.C. Tuesday after Charlotte-Mecklenburg detectives obtained a murder warrant in his name.

Detectives were headed to South Carolina around 2 p.m. to pick up Hunter and bring him back to Mecklenburg County, where he’ll be held in the county jail.

Steele, 57, died of a gunshot wound Feb. 25 at a residence in the 2800 block of Wedgefield Drive, off of Old Steele Creek Road, in the Wingate neighborhood east of Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Already charged with murder and arrested in the case are Ryan Kendell Andrews, 24, Reuben Timothy Curry, 28 and Charlie Edward Snowden, 29.
