NC man, 76, shoots youth, 15, after home invasion
CHARLOTTE — Police in Charlotte are unraveling a home invasion and burglary that ended with a 15-year-old suspect shot to death on a nearby street.
The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that police have not charged 76-year-old C.L. McClure in Marcus Fluker’s death.
Police say four teens entered McClure’s home Saturday. McClure was bound with duct tape and his wife held at gunpoint. The robbers left with some jewelry and a wallet.
McClure’s son said his father broke free and followed with his gun. Larry McClure says his father spotted a suspected robber he thought was armed and fired his pistol when the teen turned toward him.
Police say they didn’t find a gun from near Fluker’s body.
