"Detectives are investigating a homicide in the 9900 block of University Village Boulevard". He said a fourth person's injuries were less serious. They were later pronounced dead.

"Officers located multiple victims with gunshot wounds". UNC-Charlotte's police force, like its counterparts across the country, has trained intensively to respond to campus shootings in recent years.

Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Services Agency said two people were killed, two others had life-threatening injuries and another two suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Associated Press.

Baker said officers were able to get quickly to the building where the shooting happened because they already were converging for a Waka Flocka Flame concert on campus.

"A student should not have to fear for his or her life when they are on our campuses", he said. The school said later on its website the campus was on lockdown and that students and staff should "remain in a safe location". Parlier was hoping to have a career as a game developer.
