UNC Charlotte's police force, like its counterparts across the country, has trained intensively to respond to campus shootings in recent years. The suspect, early reports say, is a student.

"I'm stunned and heartbroken", she said.

The university said on Twitter: "Run, Hide, Fight".

- Six people were shot, two of them died on the University of North Carolina Charlotte campus.

Baker said officers were able to apprehend and disarm the suspect in the room where it happened. "Our officers' actions definitely saved lives", he said. Two of the four people who were injured are now in critical condition, according to police. One person was taken into custody, according to police sources.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department later said that the campus had been secured and that officers were going through buildings to let people who were hiding know that it was safe to come out.

The two people killed and four who were injured when a college student with a pistol opened fire at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte on Tuesday were all students, according to the university's chancellor.

Two people were found dead at the scene, and two others have life-threatening injuries.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -Reports of shots fired on a North Carolina university campus Tuesday prompted a lockdown and chaotic scenes in North Carolina's largest city.

Baker, chief of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte's Police & Public Safety agency, said swift intervention by authorities prevented a shooting on campus from claiming more lives.

The lockdown remained in place until nearly 10 p.m., and the remaining people on campus were allowed to leave shortly before 11 p.m.

It was not immediately known whether the victims were students, educators or staff.

Videos retweeted by local media show students running and walking away from the building where the shooting occurred and police running toward the building, as well as a high concentration of emergency vehicles, including helicopters flying overhead.

Spenser Gray, a junior, said she was in a campus building near where the shooting happened watching another student's presentation when they were alerted to the shooting.

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

Baker said there was an increased police presence on campus Tuesday afternoon because of a Last Day of Classes concert featuring rapper Waka Flocka Flame.
