The University of North Carolina at Charlotte lifted a campus lockdown yesterday, a day after a gunman killed two people and wounded four on the school's last day of classes for the semester.

Police arrested and charged student Trystan Andrew Terrell (22) with two counts of murder and four of attempted murder. Three of the four people wounded were in a critical condition yesterday.

Students on the campus spent a harrowing night as police searched for any other suspects, not giving people the all-clear to move until almost dawn.
