Charlotte security guard killed at nightclub
Charlotte NC May 15, 2023
A shooting at a Mecklenburg County night club has left one security guard dead.
Charlotte police responded to gunshots being fired at the Diamonds of Charlotte, an adult entertainment club in a north Tryon neighborhood, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
When officers arrived, they found a security guard shot.
Police later identified him as Nicholas Cole.
He died at the hospital on Saturday, just before 3 a.m.
Cole, 26, was a hard worker his employer and friends said.
That’s the trait they remember most about Cole — he was a hard worker.
Cole was kind, funny and genuine.
Cole was so joyful he brought happiness into every room he walked into, his younger brother, Jason Moon said.
Dozens of posts made by friends and family members on Cole’s social media relay the same message: He was a person who was a friend to everyone and had a larger-than-life personality.
Cole grew up in Mississippi before moving to Kannapolis, North Carolina. He is survived by his parents, four brothers and three sisters, according to his obituary.
CMPD has not said if an arrest has been made in the shooting.
