Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Chief Kerr Putney called Howell a hero Wednesday, saying he tackled the shooter and knocked him down, likely saving lives.

"But for his work, the assailant may not have been disarmed".

"You're either going to run, hide and shield or you're going to take the fight to the assailant", he said.

"Unfortunately, we did lose two students", UNC Charlotte Chancellor Philip Dubois told WBT radio.

Two people have been killed and four others wounded - two with life-threatening injuries - in a shooting at the University of North Carolina. Those wounded were Sean Dehart, 20, and Drew Pescaro, 19, both of Apex; Emily Houpt, 23, of Charlotte; and Rami Alramadhan, 20, of Saihat, Saudi Arabia.

22-year-old University of North Carolina-Charlotte history student Trystan Andrew Terrell has been identified as the gunman responsible for the mass shooting that left 2 people dead and 4 injured. Dubois also said he reached out to the families of both men and told them the university would do "everything we can to lift them up over the hard days, weeks, and months ahead", according to WTVD. Two people were killed and four others were hospitalized.

While authorities worked to clear the buildings and ensure there were no more shooters, panicked students crouched in halls as helicopters buzzed overhead.

Emergency vehicles cluster on Mary Alexander Road on the campus of University of North Carolina at Charlotte after the shooting.

The shooting took place three days after a gunman opened fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, killing a congregant.

His grandfather, Paul Rold of Arlington, said he moved to Charlotte from Mansfield about two years ago after his mother died. A motive for the shooting is still unclear.

According to its website, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte enrolls more than 26,500 students and employs 3,000 faculty and staff.

Graduate student Ari Seal said he was in the gym when the alert came, and that lights were shut off, and students were told to huddle together in the center of the gym.

Officers entered the building where the suspect was armed with a handgun, Baker said.

Harden said she has taught inside the Kennedy building, where the shootings happened.

Earlier this evening, one student spoke with WSOC-TV over the phone, stating he had been heading to the concert when he heard there were reports of an active shooter on campus.

The latest in a string of mass shootings in the USA came just days after a teenage gunman opened fire on a synagogue in Poway, California, killing one person and injuring three others.

"His dad hasn't a clue about what happened, or why it happened", Mr Rold said. The gunman apparently targeted an anthropology class shortly after 5:30 p.m. for reasons that remain unknown.

"But I just believe it's inherent in those who take the class, based off of their backgrounds and their upbringing. that someone would actually sacrifice themselves for others", Smith said.
