Original Story (10/20/21):
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is conducting a homicide investigation after a woman was killed just outside of Uptown Charlotte Wednesday afternoon.
Police responded to the 1400 block of Spring Street, near intersection of Statesville Avenue and Oaklawn Avenue, according to a 1 p.m. tweet from CMPD.
When they arrived, officers located a woman with an apparent gunshot wound. The victim, identified as 40-year-old Eileen Rosado, was pronounced dead at the scene by Medic.
From the information provided by witnesses, detectives had reason to believe the suspect was possibly still on the scene. Out of an abundance of caution, the CMPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team responded to assist with a search for the suspect, who was determined to have fled the area.
When they first arrived, officers thought the suspect could still be inside the house where the homicide occurred, and SWAT negotiators called out to the suspect on loud speakers. When SWAT entered the house, they did not find the suspect inside.
The investigation into this case is active and ongoing.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit detective.
