CHARLOTTE, N.C.– Authorities say the gunman who killed two students in a North Carolina college classroom didn’t appear to target any particular person but did deliberately pick the building where it happened.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said he promised the father of one of the victims that his detectives will do everything they can to try to figure out why the shooter opened fire Tuesday in a classroom at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
Former student 22-year-old Trystan Andrew Terrell has been charged in the attack that killed two students and wounded four others.
Authorities did not say how many students were in the anthropology class at the time of the shooting but said it was a fairly large class.
Putney says the weapon used in the shooting was purchased legally.
