CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police have not released the name of a man shot and killed as he apparently tried to force his way into his estranged girlfriend's home early Monday morning.
Police were called to the home on Morning Drive, off West Boulevard, just after 4 a.m., where they found the man dead on the front porch.
Neighbors told Eyewitness News they heard four shots and saw the man's body.
Tony Ross said he spoke to the man who lives in the home—whose daughter was the victim's girlfriend.
"He said she had to shoot him. 'He kicked my door in, had a gun in his hand. She shot him,'" Ross said.
A woman who knew both the victim and his girlfriend said she had tried to keep them apart, and that after the shooting the woman who apparently pulled the trigger called her.
