CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 32-year-old man has been shot to death on a Charlotte street not far from where hundreds of people were gathered for a neighborhood barbecue.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said Nakio Cousart was found dead in a car around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Investigators think the shooting may have been related to drugs.

Detectives are looking for a blue SUV seen driving away from the area. They have not named any suspects in the killing.

Police say this is the second deadly shooting in the neighborhood in the past two weeks.
