A security guard shot an assault suspect outside a northeast Charlotte motel early Friday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say.
Two women told the security guard at the Travel Inn on Reagan Drive that they had been assaulted by a man and needed help.
That’s when police say the security guard encountered the man in the parking lot, got into a fight and shot him. It happened around 1:20 a.m.
Medic took the man to Carolinas Medical Center, where he is being treated for a serious injury.
