Arrest made in deadly Charlotte shootings

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have arrested a suspect in the July 11 double killings on Reagan Drive.

Levi Johnson Jr., 23, of Jacksonville, Fla., was arrested early Friday by CMPD’s SWAT and Violent Criminal Apprehension teams in the 1500 block of Cottonwood Street, according to officials.

Police said Johnson was wanted in connection with the July 11 shooting deaths of Inna Gonzalez, 21, and Davion Funderburk, 22. Two others received non-life threatening injuries when the vehicle all four victims were in was shot into.

Over the course of the homicide investigation, detectives obtained warrants for Johnson for two counts of first-degree murder; two counts of attempted murder; two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury; and four counts of shooting into an occupied vehicle causing serious injury.

Johnson is being held without bond on the murder charges in the Mecklenburg County jail.

Anyone with additional information about the shootings is asked to call 704-432-TIPS to speak directly to a homicide detective.
