Terrell is charged with two counts of murder, four counts of attempted first-degree murder, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, discharging a firearm on educational property and possession of a gun on educational property, according to jail records cited by the Charlotte Observer.

The shooting comes just days after a teenage gunman opened fire on a synagogue in Poway, California, killing one person and injuring three others. As a friend said, 'Beautiful souls like Riley are always with us in the way they made life more lovely'.

He was familiar with the classroom building where the attack occurred, but it was unclear if he knew the students who were shot, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said on Wednesday. Two of those people's injuries are life-threatening. Mr Howell and another student were killed; four others were wounded. Officers assembling nearby for a concert rushed to the classroom building and arrested the gunman in the room where the shooting took place.

Thousands gathered Wednesday on the campus of the University of North Carolina Charlotte on Wednesday, holding candles in memory of victims of a shooting.

"You're either gonna run, gonna hide and shield, or you're gonna take the fight to the assailant", Putney said, per Fox News. Four more students were injured by the gunman, Drew Pescaro, 19, Sean DeHart, 20, Rami Alramadhan, 20, and Emily Houpt, 23.

It was not immediately clear as to why the shooting broke out.

"It was terrifying - did not expect it in the least", the student says. "I will not be able to perform or even make it to the venue... please tell all my supporters and followers to be safe", Waka wrote on his Instagram Stories.

"When we are faced with something like this, I can't tell you the feelings, the sorrow", said Jeffrey Baker, chief of the university police.

During a press conference Tuesday night, campus police explained they got reports of a suspect armed with a pistol that had shot several students and multiple officers before going into one of the campus buildings, WCSC reported.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said it doesn't believe any other suspects were involved in the shooting. She said she directed students fleeing the scene to take cover inside a parking deck. "Someone said 'School shooter!"

WSOC-TV reported that the shooter was a student at the university.

"It was a really scary experience to hear the shots and have to run".
