A gas station clerk was fatally shot Monday morning in west Charlotte in what police say appears to have been a robbery.    

CMPD says officers found Ismael Doumbia, 50, with a gunshot wound while responding to a call of assault with a deadly weapon around 3:30am at a Shell station on Freedom Drive near Alleghany Street.  

Police say Doumbia was taken to the hospital where he died a short time later. No arrests have been reported.  

It’s the 53rd homicide in Charlotte this year. There were 57 in all of last year.
