Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested a man suspected of
killing a convenience-store clerk during a June 3 robbery in west Charlotte.
CMPD identified the suspect as Desmin Logan, 30.
Logan was arrested today and
charged with murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. He is
accused of killing 51-year-old Ismael Doumbia while attempting to rob a Shell
station on Freedom Drive. Authorities did not say what evidence might link
Logan to the crime.
The shooting, captured on video, shows what appears to be a black male whose face is covered by a black mask. In a still image released by CMPD, the killer was shown using one hand to hold up his baggy blue jeans while brandishing a weapon in the other hand. The shooting was reported at 3:20 a.m.
Stoppers within hours offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the
shooter’s arrest. The FBI offered an additional $10,000.
days later, CMPD homicide detectives and members of Doumbia’s family held a
press conference at the Shell station asking for the public’s help in solving
Mecklenburg jail records
