Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting Monday as a 29-year-old man from Charlotte.
The latest homicide was reported shortly before 4 p.m. Monday at an apartment in the 4900 block of Endolwood Road. That is off Kimmerly Glen Drive, between Sharon Amity Road and East W.T. Harris Boulevard.
Police say officers responded to a call and found two men withgunshot wounds.
One man, identified as Micah Christopher Atkinson, was rushed by Medic to Carolinas Medical Center, where he died. The other victim suffered life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Investigators say they believe the victims and the shooter knew each other, and that Monday’s shooting was not a random act of violence.
Mecklenburg County court records show Atkinson had been arrested five times in recent years, on a variety of charges. In May, he was charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle and obtaining property by false pretense. And a May 2012 arrest included a charge of common-law robbery.
