KANNAPOLIS — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the Monday shooting death of a Kannapolis man.

Deputies responded to 1975 Michelle Drive around 4:30 p.m. Monday, after Heather Helms found her father, Henry Arthur Aldridge, 54, dead on his living room floor.

He had been shot, sheriff’s officials said.

A North Carolina Medical Examiner confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Aldridge died as a result of a gunshot wound. Investigators did not release how many times Aldridge was shot, nor what type of gun was used.

Authorities are asking anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the Michelle Drive neighborhood to report that information.

Aldridge, who lived alone, had not been heard from by friends and his daughter. “She hadn’t heard from him and several others tried to get a hold of him,” said sheriff’s Lt. Terry Agner.

Aldridge’s daughter lives next door.

A man who answered Helms’ home phone late Tuesday afternoon said the family did not want to comment.

Anyone with information should call Sgt. C.A. Moose or Detective J.S. Burleyson at 704-216-8700.
