Gunman kills two in North Carolina varsity; motive unclear

Posted May 03, 2019

A UNC Charlotte student who was killed in Tuesday's shooting is being hailed a hero after police say he went after the gunman in an attempt to save others.

First-degree murder in North Carolina carries a mandatory minimum sentence of life in prison without parole, and a conviction would make Terrell eligible for the death penalty, said Meghan McDonald, a spokeswoman for the local prosecutor.

An Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter account owned/operated by the 22-year-old Trystan Andrew Terrell have yet to be found. Howell, of Waynesville, and Ellis R. Parlier, 19 of Midland, were killed. Tristan Field, a student who witnessed the shooting, told CBS News as many as 50 students tried to escape through two doors. An ROTC cadet, Howell, 21, confronted the gunman as the shooter opened fire in a classroom, and Howell gave his life protecting his classmates, police confirmed.

Police were scrambled to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Tuesday night to reports of a suspect armed with a handgun.

"You're either gonna run, gonna hide and shield, or you're gonna take the fight to the assailant", Putney said, per Fox News.
