Police are investigating a death that will likely be recorded as Charlotte’s 100th criminal homicide of 2019.

Authorities have identified the victim as 19-year-old Nathaniel Lee Isenhour.

Police believe Isenhour was shot late Monday near a shopping center in the 8600 block of University City Boulevard.

CMPD got a call at 9:57 p.m. about shots fired at the location. When officers got there, they found evidence of a shooting but no suspect or victim.

A short time later, an adult male with a gunshot wound was located at Atrium Health University City Hospital. He was transferred to Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and died Tuesday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call 704-432-TIPS to speak with a homicide detective. The public can also leave information anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website at charlottecrimestoppers.com.

What will likely be recorded as Charlotte’s 99th criminal homicide was reported earlier on Tuesday when an employee at an adult arcade on East W.T. Harris Boulevard died after he was shot at work. No arrest has been announced in that case, and the police have offered few details.
