Officials said they responded around 11:30 a.m. to an armed robbery at the restaurant on South Boulevard, near Westinghouse Boulevard.

Police said an employee at the Steak 'n Shake was shot and killed by a robbery suspect.

Family members told Channel 9 the man who was killed was Darnell Harris. Police confirmed the victim's identity Wednesday morning.

A witness said Harris, 48, intervened during the robbery, which led to the fatal shooting.

Channel 9 learned one of the two people taken to the hospital was the robbery suspect, identified as Eddie Doh, and that the other person wounded was a customer, 53-year-old Robert Carpenter Jr.

Police said Carpenter was also shot by Doh.

Police confronted the suspect inside the restaurant and the situation spilled outside. At least one Pineville officer felt threatened and shot the suspect, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

“The officers encountered the suspect, engaged him and there were shots fired,” CMPD Chief Kerr Putney told reporters.

Suspect's criminal background

Police identified the suspect as 30-year-old Eddie Doh, who has a long criminal history, including assault, fraud and attempted robbery.

Doh had spent more than nine years in prison for being an accessory to the murder of 17-year-old Aerieal Patterson on Arbroath Court in 2011. A gun believed to be Doh's was found at that scene.
