At an emergency meeting Friday, Student Congress questioned the timeliness of Alert Carolina’s notification of danger to students in response to Tuesday’s tragic shooting.
The shooting took the lives of Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yosur Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha. Craig Steven Hicks was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and is being held without bail at Central Prison in Raleigh.
“I heard from a lot of people who were upset about how Alert Carolina handled the situation,” said Peter McClelland, speaker pro-tempore of student congress.
McClelland introduced a resolution calling for answers in regards to the delay in email notification and the absence of text notification, he said.
“To my knowledge, there are some students that didn’t get this information at all, until it was on the news,” said Ivy Hardy, speaker of student congress.
