Two people were killed and four others were injured in a shooting at the University of North Carolina on April 30. The two killed have been identified as Ellis Parlier, 19, and Riley Howell, 21. The four injured have been identified as students Emily Houpt, 23; Drew Pescaro, 19; Sean DeHart, 20, and Rami Alramadhan, 20.

The suspected gunman, Trystan Andrew Terrell, was a history major at the university, though he dropped out this semester. Terrell opened fire at around 5:45 pm and a campus-wide notification was sent at 6 pm.

Terrell has been charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of a firearm on educational property and discharging a firearm on educational property, two counts of murder, and four counts of attempted murder, police said.

“For many people here, this will be the worst day of their lives,” said North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper. “This is a tough day, but the university will get through it.”

All campus events have been cancelled, including a scheduled Waka Flocka Flame concert.
