CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man died after being shot early Sunday inside a club near North Tryon Street, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.
Officers found Gregory Spearman, 34, with a gunshot wound around 3:30 a.m. at Lust of Charlotte at 124 Atando Ave.
Paramedics took him to Carolinas Medical Center, where he died.
Investigators said evidence and information gathered at the scene led them to arrest Wade Mosley, 27, on Sunday. Mosley is charged with murder and is expected to face a judge for the first time Monday.
It has been at least two years since police have responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call at the club, Lt. Jeff Harless said. He said officers typically respond to larcenies in the area.
Harless told us in recent years, it has been a quiet area and this type of crime is unusual.
"Every now and then we'll have a larceny from auto, something stolen, somebody getting robbed, something of that nature," he said.

But it hasn't always been that way.
"It's been at least two years since we've had an ADW [assault with a deadly weapon] here," he said.
Channel 9 checked our archives, and in September 2013, a 22-year-old was shot and killed outside the club, which was then called Cabaret 124.
About four years ago, there was another shooting at the same address in November 2012 that injured a security guard.
In February 2011, a security guard and patron of the club were hit with bullets when some fired shots through the door.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 704-432-TIPS or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
