CONCORD, N.C. — Police have released photos from security cameras of the person they believe is responsible for a deadly shooting at the Concord Mills Mall Saturday night. The shooting happened just before 9 p.m. in the parking lot of Dave and Buster’s.
13 yr old girl was shot and killed in mall parking lot, while 15 & 16 yr old boys were shot & are lucky to be alive! It’s highly unlikely this ‘person of interest’ went to the mall alone or is otherwise anonymous! Someone knows who he is and we NEED the public’s help!-Chief Gacek
Police said 13-year-old Avenanna Propst was pronounced dead at the scene and two other male juvenile victims were taken to the hospital. Officials said the boys, who are under the age of 16, are expected to be OK.
Police said Avenanna and the two boys were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Channel 9 spoke with Avenanna’s mother who said she was on her way to Concord Mills to pick up her three daughters Saturday when the shooting happened.
She said the girls were at the mall buying shoes with money they got for Christmas when they called her to say they were ready to go home.
The mother said she was parking her car when she got a frantic call from her older daughter saying that Avenanna had been shot in the parking lot. She said she ran to the area and found Avenanna on the ground.
CP Update: Dontae Laquavious Milton-Black was captured Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. by members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team and Concord Police. Milton-Black, of Charlotte, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Avenanna Propst and felony riot.
Additional charges are pending as the investigation in the shooting continues.
Concord Police also confirmed that the black male in the red and white Coca Cola logo sweatshirt/hoddie is no longer a suspect and was not the shooter Milton-Black.
Unfortunately several media outlets continue to run the above photo along with the update story of Milton-Black's arrest.
The African American community has become a culture of violence embracing gun play and criminality as a way of life.
Concord Mills and North Lake are malls in the death grip of Thugs and Hood Rats. It is insane the crowds that roam the parking lots at night. No one is safe and it is just going to get worst until one or both meet an Eastland Mall death.
