Michael DeAngelo Laney Killed By CMPD While Riding A Red Scooter (Another BLACK Suspect) R.I.P.

Man shot, killed by officer in northwest Charlotte

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating a deadly shooting involving an officer.

The shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. Monday on Crestview Drive when a CMPD officer shot and killed 28-year-old Michael DeAngelo Laney.

Investigators say it started when officers tried to stop a man on a red scooter, because that scooter fit the description of a vehicle used in armed robbery on June 25.

Authorities say police attempted to stop the scooter, but the suspect tried to get away and ran to his house on Crestview Drive.

Police say officers struggled with Laney when they caught him. Investigators say Laney then reached for a gun and Officer Anthony Holzhauer shot and killed Laney.

Officer Holzhauer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Officer Holzhauer has been with CMPD since January 2010.

This is the second officer-involved shooting in the last week. Last Wednesday, a CMPD officer shot a robbery suspect during a chase in northwest Charlotte.

The suspect, Christopher Michael Fortson, ran from police and pulled a gun during the chase. Fortson was shot but was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

After the incident, officer Joshua Baswell was placed on administrative leave while the investigation is being conducted.

Monday night's shooting happened just five miles away from last Wednesday's shooting off of West Avenue.
