HUNTERSVILLE – Police and family members made a fresh appeal Tuesday for information that could help solve the mystery of who killed 19-year-old Peter Jordan in February with a gunshot through the door of a Huntersville apartment complex. His mother, Carolyn Averill of Cornelius, said her son had “a big heart,” and she’s “baffled” why anyone would want to hurt him.
Jordan died Feb. 19, 2014, after being shot several times at The Landings at Northcross apartments, off I-77 Exit 25, east of Birkdale Village.

Nobody wants to sit in a long line of cars. That’s why the back roads around West Catawba Avenue have been jammed this summer as Cornelius residents hunt for shortcuts to bypass the gridlock around the Exit 28 interchange. Contractors for the NCDOT are in the mist of a $6 million project to reconfigure the interchange into what’s called a diverging diamond.
While some of the shortcuts can shave 30 minutes off your commute, others now are anything but a secret – snarled with traffic. Still others require cutting in line and that could earn you the ire of other drivers.
