Police: Man shot, killed in North Charlotte home in domestic violence-related incident


Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating the death of a man in a shooting Wednesday afternoon in north Charlotte.

Authorities were called to a house on Pennsylvania Avenue, off the Brookshire Freeway, just after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. They said the call was for a domestic violence-related assault with a deadly weapon with injuries.

Police confirmed that Rami Amin Neal, 36, was shot. He was taken to hospital, where he later died, officers said.

CMPD said investigators are not looking for any more suspects. They call the case domestic because the suspect and Neal may have been related. They didn’t say how the shooting happened, but said they weren’t sure why Neal went to the house.

“We are not free to talk about what drew the suspect to the home in the first place. We’re bringing that together,” said Dave Robinson of CMPD. “We don’t believe this is an arbitrary crime and because this is domestically related, the parties may be known to each other.”

Neighbors declined to talk to the camera, but said they knew the family who lives at the center of the investigation. They said Neal was trying to get in when he got shot.
