2 dead, 4 injured in shooting on UNC-Charlotte campus Tuesday afternoon

Two people were killed and four injured in a shooting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Tuesday, authorities said.  Three people are in critical condition, UNC Charlotte police Chief Jeff Baker said at a press conference. All four injured were transferred to Carolinas Medical Center's main hospital in Charlotte.  One suspect was taken into custody, and there is no reason to believe anyone else was involved, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police tweeted. Baker said police are not ready to release information about the suspect as the investigation is ongoing. The identities of the victims are being held until their families have been notified, Baker said.  UNC Charlotte Office of Emergency Management issued an alert around 5:40 p.m. reporting shots fired near the school’s Kennedy building. Police have not confirmed in what building the shooting took place.
