Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokeswoman Cindy Wallace says officers were called shortly before 1 a.m. Monday and found a man who had been shot. He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The victim was 24-year-old William Weddington.

Police said 63-year-old Maurice Grant talked with investigators and has been charged with murder. It was not known if Grant has an attorney yet.
