CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - A homicide investigation is underway after a man was found shot to death inside a vehicle in broad daylight Monday morning in north Charlotte, police said.
"We've got multiple crime scenes that we've secured at this point," CMPD Major Alan Rutledge told FOX 46. "We are interviewing witnesses but at this point we do not believe this to be a random incident."
Officers responded to calls about 'multiple gunshots' heard around 9:36 a.m. near the intersection of Feldbank Drive and Evanshire Drive. When officers and Medic got to the scene, they located a man with an apparent gunshot wound inside a vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Eugene Williams.
Police say Williams was driving at the time. His car rolled to a stop on a nearby lawn. He was alone at the time.
A growing tribute of flowers and balloons were left at the scene.
A second crime scene was located in the roadway near the intersection of Evanshire Drive and Trinity Road. It is unclear if the victim and suspect(s) were acquaintances.
Witnesses tell FOX 46 Charlotte they heard at least six gunshots go off in the area. An onlooker who wished to remain anonymous said she never thought something like this would so close.
"No never," she said. "Never did."
Multiple streets were shut down Monday near the crime scene. There is no suspect description and police say this is an ongoing investigation.
FOX 46 spotted at least four evidence markers on the ground.
This is Charlotte's 58th homicide, tying the entire total for 2018
