Police: Man targeted, shot in the ankle at east Charlotte hotel

A man was transported to the hospital with minor injuries after he was shot in the ankle Thursday night at an east Charlotte hotel, police said. 

The shooting happened at the Inn Towne Suites located at 7135 Albemarle Road. CMPD detectives said the victim is a man in his 50s. 

The shooter is believed to have been outside of the hotel room, most likely in a vehicle. 

Investigators said preliminary information has led them to believe that the victim was 'specifically targeted' in his room as he was involved in an argument with a known individual. 

So far, no arrests have been made in this case.
