Man charged in connection to Colebrook Road fatal shooting

- A man has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting over the weekend in east Charlotte that started over an argument between multiple people, according to police.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, 23-year-old James Russell Andrews has been charged with the murder of Jarel D'Shaun Grace. Russell was taken into custody Wednesday morning at a home in the 2100 block of Camp Green Street. 

Officers were called about 2:30 p.m. Saturday to the 4100 block of Colebrook Road. When they arrived, they found Grace suffering from a gunshot wound in the front yard. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Shortly after, officers were called to the 4000 block of Briarhill Drive where another person had been shot. The victim was transported with non-life-threatening injuries. The person walked to that location in attempt to call 911 for help, police say.

Police later learned that a third victim was shot. That person had left the scene of the homicide prior to officers arriving to the location. He went to CMC-University where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

Investigators said that three suspects were robbing the victims when the shootings occurred. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
