A Rocky River High School student who was shot after getting off a school bus in east Charlotte Wednesday afternoon died of his injuries Friday. Investigators said Nahzir Taylor, 17, was shot on Lanza Drive near Robinson Church Road.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced soon after that a juvenile was arrested and faced multiple charges in Taylor's shooting, including attempted first degree murder.

The latter charge was upgraded to first degree murder following Tayor's passing.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools said in a news release they were saddened by Taylor’s passing and extended condolences to his family.

"We are saddened by the passing of Nazhir Taylor and acknowledge the impact this loss will have on our entire school community," CMS said.
