Vigil planned after 2 killed, 4 wounded in North Carolina university shooting
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A shooting that killed two and wounded four at a North Carolina university left students scrambling for shelter and prompted fresh calls for ways to keep campuses safe.
A vigil was planned for Wednesday on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, where the shooting on Tuesday upended the last day of class. The governor vowed a hard look at what happened in order to prevent future shootings.
Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, told reporters that students should not have to fear for their lives on campus. He added: "In the coming days we will take a hard look at all of this to see what we need to do going forward."
The victims killed have been identified as 19-year-old Ellis Parlier and 21-year-old Riley Howell. The people injured include 19-year-old Drew Pescaro, 20-year-old Sean Dehart, 23-year-old Emily Houpt, and 20-year-old Rami Alramadhan.
