Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested five teenagers early Tuesday morning in the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy in Northeast Mecklenburg County on Sunday night.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say that trouble started on Saturday. Five teenagers believed 17-year-old Kydaryune “K.C.” Curry disrespected them in front of a girl.
The Charlotte Observer spoke to Curry’s mother, Benita Turner. She told the Observer the girl was a friend of Curry’s. Curry and a friend were at the girl’s house on Saturday when one of the teens later charged with his murder arrived.
