Police have arrested a fourth person in connection with the string of robberies March 30 in Charlotte that ended with a fatal shooting.
The latest arrest was that of a 15-year-old male who apparently was taken into custody in Gaston County. All of the suspects in the series of crimes were either 15 or 16 years old.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say the latest arrest took place Monday. The 15-year-old, who faces two counts of armed robbery, is not being charged in the shooting death of 44-year-old Ronald Glenn Gullette. Investigators said they are not looking for any additional suspects in Gullette’s death.
The string of crimes began about 2:30 a.m. March 30, with a robbery and carjacking in the 4700 block of North Tryon Street. Following that were a robbery and carjacking at 4 a.m. on West Boulevard in west Charlotte, the robbery of a jogger about 7:45 a.m. on Canterwood Drive in north Charlotte, and a robbery and carjacking about 8:20 a.m. on Pence Road in east Charlotte.
Never miss a local story.
Then shortly before 10 a.m., Gullette was shot and killed in his driveway on Hemby Woods Drive in north Charlotte.
On March 31, police charged 16-year-old Randy Shaun and a 15-year-old with murder, robbery and other offenses. They are the only suspects charged in Gullette’s death.
In addition, a 15-year-old girl was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing. She was not charged in the robberies.
On April 1, 16-year-old Bobby Lannell Hargrove was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact of a felony (murder).
The names of the 15-year-old suspects are not being released because of their ages, authorities said.
