CMPD search for suspects in east Charlotte car theft, shooting

More Information


Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Friday were searching for two suspects they say shot someone in the process of stealing a car in east Charlotte.

The suspects stole a silver 2003 BMW from the Forest Ridge Apartments complex at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, police said. A witness to the crime tried to chase the suspects down and was shot in the arm during the chase, according to police.

The injuries were not life-threatening.

Police haven’t found the victim’s vehicle. They said the suspects used a debit card that was inside the BMW to make two unauthorized purchases on Thursday.

Investigators have released surveillance photos of the suspects while they were making those purchases at area store. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Crime Stopper’s tip-line at 704-334-1600, or visit http://charlottecrimestoppers.com.
