Police say a Charlotte man who was shot during a robbery at his home managed to wrestle a gun away from the two burglars, killing one and wounding another.
Authorities say 28-year-old Riccorian Lahaorris Smith was shot
during the altercation Wednesday. He was scheduled for surgery at

Police believe two men broke into Smith's home shortly after

abdomen. Investigators say he managed to gain control of the gun
and shot both suspects.
Officers found 22-year-old Anthony Marquse Roland dead at the
scene. Authorities say one of the suspects was found shot in the
street and transported to the hospital. Police are looking for a
third suspect, who may have driven the getaway car.
