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
Carolinas Medical Center.
Police believe two men broke into Smith's home shortly after
5:30 a.m. Smith confronted the men and was shot in the lower
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.
