Less than a day after a Charlotte man was shot and killed in a west Charlotte apartment, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police made an arrest.
Davenon Alexander Farmer, 39, has been charged with murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Police say he shot William Jacobs, 44, around 10 p.m. Sunday.
Police found Jacobs with a gunshot wound at the apartment on Timberbrook Drive near Tuckaseegee Park. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jacobs and Farmer knew each other, police said. Several people were in the apartment at the time of the shooting, and CMPD detectives interviewed witnesses, police said.
Police arrested Farmer on Monday about 3 miles away from the apartment. North Carolina court records show Farmer was found guilty of robbery with a dangerous weapon in 1998 and sentenced to 80 to 105 months in prison.
Jacobs is Charlotte's 15th homicide victim of 2018 and the second person killed on Timberbrook Drive in recent months. Kwame Deese, 27, was stabbed in the common area of an apartment complex on the 3200 block of the road in October.
