Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death Friday of a 35-year-old in a University City-area home.
Jonathan Vereen was found shot to death in a home in the 4400 block of Hubbard Road, near West Sugar Creek Road, after police received a call about gunshots at 10:22 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
Investigators said Jeffvory Hughey, 36, came to CMPD headquarters voluntarily Friday and was interviewed by homicide detectives. Police arrested Hughey at the conclusion of the interview, and said they are not seeking other suspects. Hughey is charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, and shooting into an occupied property.
Police did not say what led them to charge Hughey. He was transported to a hospital “for a medical issue,” police said, and will be taken to the Mecklenburg County jail when he is released.
