CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have identified a woman who was killed in a case of domestic violence in an east Charlotte neighborhood Monday afternoon.
The woman has been identified as 27-year-old Tulvel Denise McDougald. Her family has been notified of her death. Neighbors tell FOX 46 they knew of domestic-related incidents at the house in the past, but this time, it was deadly.
FOX 46 cameras captured police interviewing a person-of-interest in the back of a police cruiser, taking notes as the person answered questions.
One neighbor on Great Laurel Road said she was home all day and didn't notice the activity until she looked outside.
“Well, when you see yellow tape, that's not good, so I though something major happened, but I prayed for the best and not the worst and come to find out somebody passed,” Lisa Green said.
CMPD tells FOX 46 the fatal shooting was the result of a domestic disturbance, but didn't elaborate on the relationship between the two.
The call to police came in around 2 p.m. Hours later, one officer was seen carrying a young child and a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal out of the home.
“Domestic violence is real and you don't know how real it is until it's in your backyard,” Green said.
Neighbors just coming home from work jumped on the online neighborhood forum, trying to piece together what happened.
Some people said there's something that was going on since Saturday, and just anonymous tips and clues here and there, but for now, details are limited.
FOX 46 reached out to CMPD to see if that person of interest faces any charges. They said they're not ready to release that information just yet.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS.
