Police say a man found shot to death in west Charlotte on Monday evening was likely involved in a drug deal.

The shooting happened on Dundeen Street, near where the Brookshire Freeway meets Beatties Ford Road around 6 p.m.

Officers haven’t identified the dead man, who was found inside a home when police arrived. Investigators plan to release the man’s name when his family has been notified.

Officers have taken several witnesses to police headquarters to be interviewed. And detectives with the homicide unit are canvassing the neighborhood to determine if anyone else knew what happened.

Police encourage anyone with information on the shooting to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. Tipsters can also call 704-432-TIPS (8477) to speak directly with a homicide detective.
