Man arrested in South Carolina wanted in 2005 Kannapolis shooting

KANNAPOLIS ó A 25-year-old man wanted in a December 2005 shooting in Kannapolis has been arrested in South Carolina.
Charleston police officers arrested Latroy Burgess, now of Kingstree, S.C., on May 23 on weapons charges. After his arrest, Charleston officials discovered Burgess was wanted by the Kannapolis Police Department on charges involving the 2005 shooting.
The shooting occurred on Dec. 4, 2005, at 1424 Nottingham Road. Kannapolis officers responding to the scene learned that someone had fired several shots into the apartment. One person inside, Ellis Robinson of Charlotte, was struck by a bullet and needed treatment at Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast in Concord.
Kannapolis police investigators discovered that Burgess’ ex-girlfriend lived in the apartment and had been involved in an argument outside the apartment just before the shooting. Several witnesses provided information implicating Latroy Burgess as the shooter, Kannapolis authorities said.
Officers obtained warrants charging Burgess with shooting into an occupied dwelling and assault with a deadly weapon.
Burgess has been placed in the Charleston County Detention Center, and Kannapolis investigators are currently working with the South Carolina officials to return Burgess to Cabarrus County.
