And all he got out of it was $100.
Months after NoDa restaurant co-owner Scott Brooks was gunned down outside Brooks’ Sandwich House, police have arrested a suspect in his murder.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said officers arrested 33-year-old Terry Conner Jr. Wednesday morning and charged him with murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Arrest warrants said Conner stole $100 from Brooks.
Conner appeared in court on Thursday, where he apologized to the Brooks family but said he is innocent.
Only Channel 9 was there Wednesday shortly after CMPD took Conner from a house on Countryside Drive in the Hidden Valley neighborhood of north Charlotte. We saw investigators collecting evidence and speaking with people in the community.
Eyewitness News spoke with a woman at the home who knew Conner. She said police arrived before dawn with a search warrant.
Authorities have not said what led to the arrest, but did say CMPD officers as well as SWAT, the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team and the FBI were involved.
Brooks was shot to death as he arrived at his family business on North Brevard Street around 5 a.m. on Dec. 9, 2019.
