In a recent article published by 7News Boston, authorities confirmed the death of a faculty member in a science building at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill on Monday shooting incident. Police arrested the suspect over three hours after the initial reports of shooting.
University of North Carolina shooting killed one faculty staff but University officials did not immediately identify the staffer and said it was too soon to offer a possible motive. Emergency sirens sounded about two minutes after a 911 caller reported the University of North Carolina shooting around 1 p.m. at the laboratory in the heart of the flagship campus, UNC Police Chief Brian James said.
Students and faculty locked themselves in dorm rooms, offices and classrooms until the lockdown was lifted around 4:15 p.m in the University of North Carolina shooting. No other injuries were reported. Adrian Lanier, a sophomore computer science major, told The Associated Press that he and others sat against a wall in a gym in the middle of the University of North Carolina shooting.
After the University of North Carolina shooting, Lanier said that no one felt safe to leave. Oliver Katz, an exchange student from Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, said the University of North Carolina shooting was intense but he was surprised that other students weren’t panicking that much. Katz, who has only been on campus for two weeks, said he’s worried his home university will bring the exchange students back early.
During the lockdown in the University of North Carolina shooting, the university repeatedly sent alerts urging campus community members to remain safe in place. About two hours after the first alert went out, officers were still arriving in the University of North Carolina shooting, with about 50 police vehicles at the scene and helicopters circling over the school.
James, the campus police chief said that it took about an hour and a half to lift the lockdown in the University of North Carolina shooting. After the arrest of the suspect, authorities were making sure they had the right person in custody. Police also received calls around the University of North Carolina shooting about other potential victims and gunshots that needed to be checked out.
