CMPD Asks For Help Locating Car Related To University City Homicide

CMPD believes this car was used by the suspect in the Nov. 25 shooting of 19-year-old Nathaniel Isenhour.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking for help locating a car believed to be used by the suspect in the Nov. 25 shooting death of 19-year-old Nathaniel Isenhour in University City.

Police released surveillance video that shows a car with damage to its right front quarter panel and its right tail light out.

Isenhour was shot outside the Harris Teeter supermarket at 8640 University City Blvd. the week of Thanksgiving. Officers were called to the area just before 10 p.m. after reports of shots fired, but did not find a victim or suspect when they arrived.

A short time later, Isenhour was found at Atrium Health University City Hospital with a gunshot wound. He was transferred to Carolinas Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and died the next morning.

Isenhour was the son of Sonny Isenhour, a Cabarrus County deputy, who held a news conference Wednesday alongside Sheri Walker, Nathaniel Isenhour’s mother, asking for help.

“I’m begging somebody to say something,” Isenhour told reporters. “He was only 19 years old. Not knowing is absolute torture.”
