Two dead in UNCC shooting

(NBC News) An accused gunman is in custody after opening fire on the University of North Carolina Charlotte campus Tuesday, killing two people and wounding four others.

Police responded to the scene within minutes of receiving a call reporting an active shooter.

“We were able to get to the building and our officers immediately went to the suspect and take him down,” said UNCC Safety and Security Chief Jeff Baker.

Trystan Terrell, 22, was quickly taken into custody.

“He said nothing,” Baker said, referring to the suspect. “Our officers’ actions definitely saved lives, there’s no doubt about that.”

Police say Terrell is a former history major at the school.

Three of those wounded were in critical condition late Tuesday.
