A man was fatally stabbed at a gas station in Charlotte’s Dilworth neighborhood early Saturday, and police arrested a suspect they found near the scene.
The victim, 32-year-old Andrew Tyrelle Allen, was found with multiple stab wounds in the parking lot of the Shell gas station in the 200 block of East Boulevard, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department news release. Allen died at a hospital, police said.
The suspect, 55-year-old Richard Bernard Grier, was jailed on a charge of first-degree murder. His first court appearance is scheduled for Monday afternoon, jail records show.
