Police say they have identified a “person of interest” in connection with a Friday homicide.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police investigators have not released the name of the man, or said how he is connected to the case. On Sunday, they released a photo of the man, apparently snapped by a camera at a convenience store.

The victim in the Friday shooting was Terrence Mingo, who would have turned 29 later this month.

Mingo was shot as he stood in front of his house in the 6200 block of Old Meadow Road, police said.

Mingo and the shooting suspect got in a fight at a different location earlier Friday, police said, and the suspect confronted him on Old Meadow Road, where the fight ensued.

Police did not say what the fight was about.

Some people reported hearing gunshots, and police said the suspect fled in a gray Chevrolet Impala.

Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call 704-432-TIPS to speak directly with a homicide detective. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
