ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WSPA) – Detectives with Asheville Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division continue searching for answers in a homicide investigation that happened in 2022.

7NEWS previously reported, 27-year-old LaMichael Shawn Carter was found shot and killed on April 12, 2022, in the roadway of Fairfax Avenue.

“If I could say anything to the community, it is to stop the gun violence and put down the guns. There is nothing worth taking a life over,” said Wendy Brooks, mother of Carter.

“I believe somebody out there knows something, and we are asking them to come forward. LaMichael had the biggest heart and was a loving son, brother, and father to a three-year-old boy, and our family wants closure.”

The case remains an active investigation by APD Detectives.
