CHARLOTTE, NC – On January 6, 2019, a man was shot in Charlotte’s University City. As of yesterday, this resulted in the pronounced death of 22-year-old man, Subhi Elmasharaway.
The shooting in this Northeast Charlotte home, on Pimpernel Road, occurred at 9 P.M. on January 6. When help arrived, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s officers found the man clinging to life. Unfortunately, it was too late. Sadly, there were no suspects at the scene. Rather, when police arrived they found only a man with a gunshot wound in near-critical condition.
Shortly after, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Homicide Unit and Crime Scene Search began the investigation. The groups collected physical evidence immediately after medics took the victim to the nearest hospital.
Officers identified the victim as Subhi Elmasharaway. While the hospital staff pronounced the victim’s death, it did not require family identification. The investigation is ongoing and active so particular details are still not released to the public.
The Lieutenant of the county’s Sherriff’s Department recently put forth a statement asking witnesses to come forward. He claims that when an onlooker witnesses a crime, their experience may be just as scary as the victim’s experience. But, justice for Subhi is necessary.
If anyone has information, police are asking them to come forward. Either a person can call the police at (704) 432-8477 or notify Crime Stoppers.
