“A man with a pistol walked into a classroom at the University of North Carolina Charlotte late Tuesday afternoon and opened fire, fatally shooting two people and injuring four others on the last day of classes, the authorities said,” according to the New York Times.
“Chief Jeff Baker of the U.N.C.C. Police and Public Safety Department said at a news conference that three of those injured were in critical condition. The fourth had less serious injuries, he said.
“The police disarmed the suspect and took him into custody at a building on campus, Chief Baker said. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department identified the suspect as Trystan Andrew Terrell, 22, and said that charges were pending against him. The police declined to elaborate on a possible motive for the shooting.
“The episode was yet another in a series of deadly shootings that have made headlines across the United States. It happened three days after a gunman opened fire at a synagogue in Poway, Calif., killing a congregant there, and came on the heels of anniversaries of other deadly school shootings. It has been a little more than one year since 17 people were killed in Parkland, Fla., and two decades since 13 were killed at Columbine High School.”
