The gunman reportedly turned himself into police. The Chapel Hill Police Department said in a statement it was questioning a person of interest in the crime “and has reason to believe that there is no ongoing threat to the public”.

Police officers reportedly responded to report of gunshots in the area around Summerwalk Circle at 5pm. They found three people who were pronounced dead at the scene.

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

UNC student Kristen Boling told WNCN news she was at home studying at the time of the shooting and never heard the shots.

“I’m really confused and I have been since 5:30,” Bowling said.

Pictures from the scene showed young residents in shock at the news of the incident:

Friends of the three victims posted a tribute on social media.

A new hashtag #MuslimLivesMatter started to trend on Twitter in response to the shooting:

Deah Barakat, one of the victims, was reportedly a student at the University of North Carolina’s dental school and organised a fundraiser for Syrian refugees:


In January, he wrote on Twitter: “It’s so freaking sad to hear people saying we should ‘kill Jews’ or ‘kill Palestinians’. As if that’s going to solve anything.”

Barakat and Yusor had only just been married, according to some reports:

[…] Leaders there are concerned that they may have been victims of Islamophobia, citing the recent shooting deaths of three Muslims in North Carolina, the Chronicle […]


Very sad news. Why these kind of shouting happening in USA? All three death were found at a condominium complex off campus.
The gunman should be punished as per the law of the country and the family of three should get justices. USA Govt. should band the Arum and ammunition .
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. May Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala enter them into the highest gardens of Paradise! Ameen.
