Suspect arrested in shooting death of woman in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police in Charlotte have arrested a suspect in the shooting death of one woman and the wounding of another.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokeswoman Jessica Wallin said in a statement that 23-year-old Jalen Marquise Anderson was charged Monday with murder, attempted murder and firing a gun into occupied property.
