The business owner who shot and killed an alleged intruder Monday is being charged with voluntary manslaughter, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Thursday.

The owner, 49-year-old Alan Brett Corder, called 911 to say he was responding to an alarm at his business — the American Beauty Garden Center on East Independence Boulevard — around 4:30 a.m., police said Monday.

Minutes later, he called back and said he had shot someone. Corder was arrested at the garden center Thursday.

Justin Tyler Anderson, 20, was found with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead outside the store.
