Man fatally shot in southwest Charlotte

Homicide detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of a man early Thursday at a park in southwest Charlotte.

It was the second apparent murder case within 24 hours. A man was shot to death Wednesday afternoon off Dalton Avenue in north Charlotte.

The latest case took place in the 1400 block of Pressley Road, at the Pressley Road Park, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. They were called about 1 a.m. after a report of a shooting.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was found lying in the park.

Investigators canvassed the neighborhood in the early-morning hours Thursday, and CMPD called in its canine search unit. But there are no reports of arrests.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call homicide detectives at 704-432-TIPS. Or tips can be left with Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
