2 dead, 4 injured in North Carolina campus shooting

The ex-student accused of opening fire inside a University of North Carolina-Charlotte classroom appeared to confess to the shooting Wednesday - as campus officials identified each of his victims Wednesday.

Mr Howell and another student were killed, while four others were wounded.

David Belnap stood on his North Carolina college campus aching from the latest US school shooting as he held a candle and wore a homemade T-shirt with "Riley Howell is a hero" written on the back.

Two others have life-threatening injuries and another two have injuries that are not life-threatening.

An Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter account owned/operated by the 22-year-old Trystan Andrew Terrell have yet to be found. They've been identified as 21-year-old Riley Howell and 19-year-old Ellis Parlier. Mr Howell and another student were killed; four others were wounded.

The shooting Wednesday occurred at University Village, a private apartment complex near the university that is popular with students, according to local reports.

"It's going to take us some time to really figure out what happened, and more importantly, the why", Putney said. Four more students were injured by the gunman, Drew Pescaro, 19, Sean DeHart, 20, Rami Alramadhan, 20, and Emily Houpt, 23.

The motive wasn't immediately clear for suspect Trystan Andrew Terrell, who UNC-Charlotte spokeswoman Buffy Stephens said had been enrolled at the school but withdrew during the current semester.

Terrell taught himself French and Portuguese with the help of a language-learning program Rold bought him and had been attending UNC. "I didn't think I would have to experience something like that", one student told NBC News. All I can say for certain is that we will get through them together.

Police at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte were going through campus buildings to tell anyone still sheltering in place that the scene is secure.

A spokesperson for the Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department confirmed that there was an active shooter situation, however, they did not offer any additional details on the matter.

Authorities announced Tuesday night that remaining occupants of UNC Charlotte campus buildings can depart.

Aerial shots from local television news outlets showed police officers running toward a building, while another view showed students running on a campus sidewalk.

"We barricaded ourselves in a classroom that was empty, and we just waited for any emails or signals", one student said.

In a statement, UNC-Charlotte said all the victims were students, five from North Carolina and one global. Now, she says she feels guilty for surviving.
