Multiple media outlets said Yumeka Caldwell, 21, died in her apartment not long after Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrived to investigate a complaint from her Friday morning to the effect that she had received a threatening phone call from Antonio Phifer.
Police spokesman Robert Fey said officers saw Phifer outside the building and gave chase.
They then followed a car that Phifer had been known to travel in.
They stopped that vehicle, but Phifer was not inside.
Soon after that, dispatchers received a call from Caldwell's neighbors saying that they had heard several gunshots.
Officers returned to the apartment and found the bodies.
