A man was fatally shot early Tuesday in Charlotte’s University City area. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say officers found 53-year-old Kenny Ollemi with a gunshot wound in a crashed vehicle outside Classic Graphics off IBM drive just after midnight. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. 

CMPD says it appears Ollemi was driving the vehicle at the time he was shot and then crashed.  

It’s the 73rd homicide in Charlotte this year, according to CMPD. There were 58 in all of last year.
