CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating a homicide after someone was found shot to death near a greenway in the Belmont neighborhood, according to investigators.
The investigation took place on E. 16th and investigators said the shooting happened near the Little Sugar Creek Greenway.
The victim, identified as 19-year-old Psi’keem Walker, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said Walker was wearing an electronic monitor when he was shot.
“I heard the shots, but I didn't see nobody,” neighbor Samuel Boyd said.
Boyd told Channel 9 reporter Mark Becker that he heard roughly 20 gunshots around 11 a.m., and he knew it wasn't good.
“Somebody had to get shot because there were 20 rounds like this here,” Boyd said.
Police said they are looking for possibly two suspects.
“It's extremely early. We are canvassing for witnesses,” CMPD Maj. Ryan Butler said. “K-9's out working leads. Not only will they work tracks for potential suspects, but we'll also work tracks for evidence that's been left behind."
Police have not released a suspect description.
