Man Shoots his Neighbor; Charges Dropped

Police have dropped charges against a man in Mecklenburg County who is accused of shooting his neighbor last week.

Greg Hicks was shot in the chest and suffered a punctured lung. He nearly died as a result of his injuries.

“I would say it’s so close, death was knocking on my door,” Hicks said.

He lives across the street from his neighbor Chris Liewald.

On Tuesday, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department dropped all charges against Liewald.

They said Liewald acted in self defense. Liewald said Hicks threatened him and confronted him on his front lawn.
