CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) — The murder of a 44-year-old businessman inside of a business Tuesday night is one those who work in the area are still trying to process.
“Oh I was stunned. I was stunned, I could not believe something like that. A murder would happen out at this office business park,” said Lanie Clotz, an employee in the same building where the man was found shot and killed.
Clotz says despite their close proximity she doesn’t know much about the victim or what he did.
“I heard it was some type of exercise facility, but I’m not sure. I never saw people coming in and out in gym outfits or anything. In fact, I never saw anyone coming out there besides the woman and the gentleman,” she said.
CMPD isn’t commenting on his business ties either but adds a female eyewitness was with the victim and police believe the two men did not know each other.
“No. It doesn’t appear that they knew each other. It looks like a robbery gone bad.
With the investigation on going Linda says although this area is always quiet… She won’t truly rest until there is a resolution.
“We won’t feel real secure until they caught whoever did this,” Clotz said.
The victim’s name still hasn’t been released, and police aren’t telling us exactly what kind of business the man owned.
