- The Cramerton Police Department said a 49-year-old Charlotte man died Thursday morning after ralling off the roof of a home that is under construction. 

The incident occurred at 9:50 a.m. Thursday, August 4 in the 500 block of Stuart Ridge, in the Cramer Mountain Community. 

Emergency responders pronounced Javier Antonio Gomez Gonzales, of Charlotte, dead on scene.
