Man shot to death in NW Charlotte

Police say they are looking for three people in connection with the fatal shooting of a 42-year-old man Friday morning at a home in northwest Charlotte.

Detectives say Davis Wayne Walthall was shot to death at a residence in the 1600 block of Maribel Avenue, off Beatties Ford Road. Police were called shortly after 5 a.m. to the house after a 911 call about a gunshot victim.

Walthall died at the scene, police say. Investigators say it appears as if three people entered the home, and the shooting followed an argument between the victim and the other three men, who then fled.

WSOC-TV is reporting that several other people, including some children, were inside the residence when the shooting took place.

Homicide detectives canvassed the neighborhood for several hours Friday morning, trying to find witnesses. They ask that anyone with information in the case contact detectives at 704-432-TIPS.
