The man accused of fatally shooting two UNC Charlotte students and injuring four others last week has been indicted by a grand jury.

Twenty-two-year-old Trystan Terrell was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder and four counts of attempted first-degree murder as well as four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He was also indicted on one count of possession of a firearm on educational property and one count of discharging a firearm on educational property.

Terrell who is a former UNCC student began shooting a handgun in a campus classroom on April 30 resulting in the death of Ellis Reed Parlier and Riley Howell. Police have credited Howell with tackling the gunman and preventing further violence.
