The University of North Carolina, Charlotte, student who opened fire in a classroom on campus Tuesday is facing numerous charges, including two counts of murder and four counts of attempted murder.
The campus was put on lockdown early Tuesday evening, the last day of classes for the semester, following reports of an active shooter in the Kennedy building. According to CNN, police arrived to find “multiple” people shot, and were able to quickly take 22-year-old Trystan Terrell into custody, as press had already arrived at the scene. The suspect reportedly smiled at cameras as he was being led away by police.
A student at the university reportedly said on Twitter that Terrell opened fire in a classroom during presentations.
