CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Investigators say a man is dead after a fight in east Charlotte.


Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said someone called in a shooting around 9:45 p.m. Saturday and officers found 52-year-old Franklin Igwilo wounded. He died less than two hours later at the hospital.

Detectives have determined the victim and shooter were dropped off in the area just before the fight. The suspect appears to have run away after the shooting.

Investigators are still trying to identify the suspect and determine a motive for the shooting.
