    A pregnant teenager shot at her school bus stop died early Monday.
    Police said Tiffany Wright, 15, was 32 weeks pregnant when she was shot in the head on Mallard Creek Road between Sugar Creek Road and Harris Boulevard in north Charlotte. Doctors were able to deliver her baby, which is currently being treated at Carolinas Medical Center.



    This happened right down the road from me, less then 2 miles! :( how so very sad!

    "The girl's unborn baby was delivered safely at Carolinas Medical Center a few hours after the shooting and is being treated by doctors, police report."
    . . .

    Early Monday afternoon, police told reporters that they believe the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute, and they indicated that they were looking for a suspect.

    Very sad :(
    Since they think this was a domestic dispute, does that mean they think it was a boyfriend, or do they think it was the girls family? Since she was in a foster home, I wonder how long she was in foster care.

    This part of the area is just a heartbeat away from where my daughter went to school. To be clear, we are not talking some rundown area of Charlotte. This area has grown, basically brand new, and clean/safe, imho.

    God hold this newborn child and protect. I truly pray it will survive. Blessings to an innocent child mother who never, ever deserved to be murdered as she was. She was obviously stalked and watched. Planned and carried through. Is there death penalty in NC???

    This article states he was being charged with raping her in July :eek:
    She was already quite far along with her pregnancy then. What a sick sob!

    Stepbrother questioned and charged with rape.
    http://www.wcnc.com/news/topstories/stories/wcnc-091409-al-northcharlotte_shooting.17b609357.html

    The 35-year-old stepbrother of a pregnant teenager who was killed Monday morning is now charged with statutory rape.

    Police say Royce Mitchell is also a person of interest in 15-year-old Tiffany Wright's murder.

    Wright was shot in the head Monday morning as she waited for a school bus in north Charlotte.

    Police say Wright was eight months pregnant. Wright died at Carolinas Medical Center, but doctors were able to deliver her baby. The infant's condition hasn't been released.

    Mitchell turned himself in at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department late Monday afternoon.


    He's charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor and statutory rape. He is being questioned in connection with Wright's death.

    I haven't seen it reported that he is the father of the baby. Did I miss that?

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The charges against a man accused of raping his adopted teenage sister, who was gunned down in north Charlotte last month, were dropped Thursday. Mecklenburg County District Attorney Peter Gilchrist said there wasn't enough evidence to keep Royce Mitchell, 36, jailed on the rape charges.

    "We had a man that we had no evidence against and we responded appropriately,” Gilchrist said Thursday.

    He said DNA evidence showed he was not the father of 15-year-old Tiffany Wright’s baby. Wright was eight months pregnant when she was shot to death while waiting for her school bus on Mallard Creek Road on Sept. 14. Her baby girl was delivered but died a week later. But Charlotte-Mecklenburg police issued a competing statement saying, "Our detectives continue to believe they have probable cause in this case based on the evidence gathered during the investigation.

    Not sure what will happen with the murder investigation. This beautiful girl....

    not that I can tell Kbl and what a shame :( But i can tell you this, if it would have been someone else, I feel they would have been working harder to solve the case. I've seen these cops ride by crime in low poverty area's and hassle innocent walkers in the high money area's. This is also the dept that will not respond to the inquary about the Unidentified body found a block from my old neighborhood. Tiffany died 2 blocks (if that) from me. It's so sad. :( But what do I expect, someone has to take care of the high profile criminals like all the bankers Charlotte houses, right??
