Two people were killed and four were wounded on Tuesday in a shooting on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, CNN reported, citing the Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Service Agency.

Two of the victims are being treated for life-threatening injuries, and two more people have non-life threatening injuries, the agency said.

Many students were on campus at the time of the shooting due to a concert at the school.

A suspect has been identified as Trystan Terrell, a student at the university. A city official announced that he has been taken into custody.

The motives behind the shooting remain unclear.

Law enforcement officers were sweeping the affected buildings, the university tweeted out, while the campus buildings remain on lockdown.

“Campus lockdown continues. Remain in a safe location. Monitor email and UNCC homepage,” tweeted the university, which has 30,000 students.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are assisting university police in the case, reported CNN.
