CHARLOTTE — Authorities have captured a suspect wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in a north Charlotte neighborhood.


Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said 36-year-old Colin Demon Latta was arrested Thursday in York County, S.C., by its officers with assistant from the York County Sheriff's Office.

Police in Charlotte said extradition proceedings are under way.

Authorities said 54-year-old Charles Anthony Jefferson was shot and pronounced dead at Carolinas Medical Center. Two other people were taken to the hospital with what was described as non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives determined that the suspect and three victims all knew each another and got into an argument when the suspect began shooting at the victims.
