A man accused of shooting and killing a driver in northeast Charlotte last week is now facing additional charges for shooting into another car just a week earlier.

Demahj Wright, 21, was charged with murder last week, along with two other men in the shooting death of 25-year-old Tevin Snow.

Snow was driving his car on West WT Harris Boulevard on June 4, when someone shot into the vehicle, and he crashed, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.

He died a day later, and police charged Wright with murder on June 8.

Wright now faces new charges after police said he shot at another driver.

The shooting happened May 24, when a man said he turned onto West Sugar Creek Road in northeast Charlotte, and someone began to fire at his car, officials said.

The man suffered minor injuries from shattered glass and shrapnel, according to police.

Wright, who is still in jail on his murder charge, was identified as the suspect after an investigation, officials said.

He faces charges for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and discharging a weapon in a moving vehicle, according to jail records.

Oyontai Bostic, 19, and Demetrey Leake, 20, the other men accused of Snow's death, are also in jail on murder charges.
