22-year-old man fatally shot on S. Tryon, police say


Charlotte police investigated the city’s 71st homicide this year on Saturday morning.

Police and Medic both responded to the scene of a reported shooting near 7000 S. Tryon around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

The victim, who has been identified as Solomon Flemming Jr., 22, was pronounced dead on the scene. Police say some sort of dispute occurred between individuals and ended up with the death of the man.

The incident occurred at a strip of stores that has a gas station and a separate arcade, a convenience store, a cell phone store, and a Pizza Hut.

CMPD says no arrests have been made yet. Fox 46 was on the scene and was working to confirm more information.

K-9, the DA’s office, and CFD were among the divisions who responded to the scene.
