Prominent doctor was visiting Charlotte when hit by stray bullet
Updated: Oct 1, 2019 - 11:11 AM



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said a teenager accused of shooting a prominent doctor in uptown Monday afternoon has been arrested.

The shooting happened just before 4 p.m. near Trade and College streets.

Police said a fight in an alleyway of the EpiCentre led to gunfire, and a man nearby was hit by a stray bullet. That victim was identified as Dr. John Holaday.

"I see a guy laying on the ground," CMPD Deputy Chief Gerald Smith said. "The way he was laying was telling me something wasn't right."

MEDIC said Holaday, 74, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police called his condition grave.

A witness said he saw a group of what he believed to be teens run from the area where the shooting happened.

Police said they detained several subjects of interest immediately after the shooting. On Tuesday morning, police said 16-year-old Raheem Shacklette had been charged with attempted murder, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a minor.




Holaday was identified by his business as the Chairman, Founder and CEO of DisposeRx.

DisposeRx is a company "dedicated to eradicating the misuse of leftover medication in order to decrease the risk of drug diversion, accidental poisonings, overdoses, and death," according to its website.

A company spokesperson said Holaday was walking to a business meeting in uptown when he was shot, and he remains in critical condition.
