DENVER, N.C. —

Police say Trevon Young used a gun to terrorize several people in Charlotte over the past three weeks.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said Young was arrested early Friday morning.

They say Young shot two people and broke into an apartment in Greir Heights three weeks ago.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said investigators have connected 24-year-old Trevon Damieon "Daymo" Young to shootings two weeks ago on Oak Arbor Lane, West Boulevard and Brookhill Road.

One man told Eyewitness News he was hurt so badly, he has problems walking and is ashamed to show his face in public.

He says he was sitting in his car on West Boulevard when Young came to him and demanded money.

He did not want to share his name or identity because of fear for his family's safety. 

"I was like I got three seconds to make a decision," the 40-year-old victim said. "I looked him dead in his eyes and told him don't shoot me."

He said he was leaving the Southside Mart when Young jumped in his car, pulled out a pistol and demanded money. The man said he threw Young some cash and tried to run away when Young shot him in the leg. 

"I barely escaped. I'm blessed by the grace of God that I'm still here," he said.

The man says he is angry and fears that Young could strike again.

Police said Young also sprayed bullets into a car and apartment in Grier Heights on Nov. 20 and shot a man several times after robbing him off Brookhill Road November 23rd.

Police are calling Young, "armed and dangerous" because of his violent behavior.

Young was released from prison on Oct. 31 after being convicted of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. He was also a suspect in an armed robbery in 2007 and shooting that injured six people in 2009.
