    I don't know anything more than what's in the news right now. The condos where the shooting took place is an area where med students and grad students sometimes live, but I haven't heard anything more than you know right now.

    No reasons for the murders have been suggested. What does the names of the victims tell you--possibly from the Middle East?

    According to the article, the guy walking his dog said something about some suspicious activity.
    Was he meaning the 3 victims were saying "get a flashlight and look in the truck", possibly the shooters truck?
    Or just some random people were saying it? Idk. Kind of confusing.

    It is the #1 trending story on Twitter since last night, but not covered in mainstream news. Apparently the three were Muslim students. Police have arrested a 46 year old self-proclaimed atheist with a lot of hate posts in his social media accounts.

    Three college students killed in Chapel Hill shooting; 46-year-old man charged

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — A 46-year-old Chapel Hill man has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder after three college students were shot and killed Tuesday evening at a condominium complex on Summerwalk Circle in Chapel Hill, authorities said.

    <snip>

    All three victims were shot in the head, sources said.

    Barakat, a second-year dental student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, married Yusor Mohammad in late December, according to school officials. Mohammad is listed on her Facebook page as a student at North Carolina State University, and officials at UNC said she was planning to begin dental studies in Chapel Hill this fall.

    Abu-Salha, Yusor's younger sister, is listed as a sophomore at NC State and a graduate of Athens Drive High School in Raleigh.

    The dental student was raising money for Syrian dental relief for refugees in Turkey. Barakat, along with ten other dental students and UNC School of Dentistry faculty were to travel to Rihaniya, Turkey to provide relief to Syrian refugees in a primary and secondary school with over 2000 students. The endeavor is in partnership with the Syrian American Medical Society.

    Since last night's shooting, the page has exceeded its goal of $20,000.

    eta: Sorry, since it's a fundraising site, the web address is not allowed here at Websleuths. If you want to read about it, you can easily find it by googling some of the info provided in this post.

    "Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder"

    Im going to assume CH lived in the same complex. I wonder If the problems were threats of violence, slurs.

    Wow. I am so sad for their families. May they RIP.
    I am thankful that we have no shared friends in common (not that we would but you never know living in the same state).
