He is 18 years old.
Investigators say Black had an argument with a 16-year-old boy inside the mall near GameStop before closing. According to NBC Charlotte, the discussion intensified and the 16-year-old saw Black handling a gun before the teenagers were told to leave the mall. The 16-year-old, afraid that Black had a gun, came out for Dave & Buster’s, police said. When Black saw him outside, he opened fire and hit the other two teenagers and Propst.
Police said 13-year-old Avenanna Propst was pronounced dead at the scene and two other male juvenile victims were taken to the hospital. Officials said the boys, who are under the age of 16, are expected to be OK.
Police said Avenanna and the two boys were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Channel 9 spoke with Avenanna’s mother who said she was on her way to Concord Mills to pick up her three daughters Saturday when the shooting happened.
She said the girls were at the mall buying shoes with money they got for Christmas when they called her to say they were ready to go home.
The mother said she was parking her car when she got a frantic call from her older daughter saying that Avenanna had been shot in the parking lot.
She said she ran to the area and found Avenanna on the ground.
Concord police said the shooting started as a verbal altercation between a 16-year-old boy and Milton-Black in a common area inside the mall.
As the altercation escalated, the 16-year-old saw Milton-Black flash a gun that was in this clothing. Authorities said the group was directed out of the mall, but the 16-year-old, who said he was fearful Milton-Black had a gun, exited through Dave and Buster’s to the parking lot.
Police said Milton-Black saw the 16-year-old outside Dave and Buster’s and started firing in his direction, hitting the two juvenile male victims and killing Avenanna.
After being shot, the two victims ran into Dave and Buster’s for protection and to get medical help.
Shortly after the shooting, police released surveillance photos of Milton-Black. He had been seen wearing a red and white checked hoodie. He was seen before the shooting in the mall parking lot displaying a gun and according to witnesses, he was seen firing the weapon in the direction of Dave and Buster’s.
