Meet Rayquan Borum, future community organizer. If you look closely enough he could be Obama’s son.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officers on Friday morning arrested a Charlotte man accused of shooting and killing 26-year-old Justin Carr during protests in uptown on Wednesday night.
CMPD identified the arrested suspect as Rayquan Borum, 21. Police Chief Kerr Putney announced the arrest Friday during a press conference held by Charlotte government officials.
Borum has been charged with murder, police officials said in a news statement. He was taken into custody around 7 a.m., without incident, according to the statement.
Officials said Borum has been interviewed by homicide detectives. CMPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team made the arrest.
If you can believe it, this obvious altar boy has a — wait for it — criminal record.
Borum served about three months in prison for larceny and breaking and entering charges from Mecklenburg County, and was released in 2012, records show. He also faces at least two pending weapons charges in Cabarrus County.

Borum is no stranger to the jail. He’s been booked there before on accusations ranging from possessing a firearm as a felon to carrying a concealed weapon to drug offenses.
Jail records show he was accused in 2015 of resisting a public officer, possessing a stolen firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a firearm by a felon, possessing marijuana paraphernalia, and possessing marijuana.
The revelation that police think Borum kills Carr comes just after Charlotte’s mayor called Republican nominee Donald Trump “presumptuous” for saying that drugs played a role in the city’s protests, according to CNN.
Oops. It also appears Rayquan violated gun laws for possession of a firearm by a felon. Shocking, we know.
