CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is conducting a homicide investigation after a person was found dead on Friday in west Charlotte.

The incident happened around 11:30 a.m., and was initially reported as a death investigation. It happened in the 500 block of Brookhill Road, which appears to be within Brookhill Village.

“We’re working with the medical examiner’s office to conduct an autopsy on the individual and hopefully have a manner and cause of death in the near furfural that we’ll be able to share and release,” CMPD Major Brad Koch said Friday. “We’re not even sure at this point if it is a homicide, but we’re working to make that determination.”

An update from CMPD on Sunday confirmed that the death investigation has since become a homicide investigation.

“We’re hoping that someone has seen something whether that’s a car stop or people walking by,” Koch said.

Anybody with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers or the tips number and speak directly to a homicide detective.

The victim has been identified as 23-year-old Javarrus Jaquan Jeter.

CMPD investigated a separate death on the same block last September. Police received calls about a woman needing medical attention, and when officers arrived, they found a woman who was pronounced dead at the scene by Mecklenburg EMS.
