A suspect has been arrested in the case of a man found shot to death early Wednesday in a Charlotte home near Freedom, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.
The victim was identified as 52-year-old Titus Campbell, and police announced late Wednesday that they have charged Jamarkus Crawford, 26, with murder in the case.
Detectives say they got a 911 at 3:38 a.m. to the 4100 block of Tresevant Avenue about an assault with a deadly weapon. The neighborhood is in west Charlotte near the intersection of Freedom Drive and Interstate 85.
Officers arrived at a home to find a male with a gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead, said a press release.
The Charlotte Observer’s news partner WBTV is reporting the city’s 17th homicide of 2019 happened during “a gathering of friends” at the home. WSOC’s Mark Barber tweeted that a “disagreement” within the group occurred just before the gun was fired.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS or call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600, said a press release.
