On Tuesday, April 30, 22 year old gunman Trystan Andrew Terrell opened fire at the University of North Carolina’s Charlotte campus, killing 2 and injuring 4 more. Terrell is in custody and the campus remained on lockdown for Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Campus police were able to get to the scene before Terrell was able to leave the room where the shooting occured. They were able to disarm the suspect quickly, who was allegedly armed with a pistol. University Chancellor Philip Dubois announced the student’s exams will be cancelled until at least May 5, and counseling is available to students on campus during the shooting now, and will be available to the rest of the school May 8.
