CHARLOTTE, NC — At least two people were killed and several others were injured in a shooting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, according to several reports and law enforcement officials.

The campus was locked down around 6 p.m. ET as officials warned of an “active assailant.” Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Services Agency confirmed that two people were dead, but it was not immediately clear if they were students or staff, Fox News reported.

It’s not clear whether a suspect was in custody.

The school’s Office of Emergency Management tweeted that “shots” were reported near the Kennedy Building. Buildings across campus were “being swept by law enforcement.”

“Shots reported near kennedy. Run, Hide, Fight. Secure yourself immediately,” the university said in a tweet.

“NinerAlert: Campus lockdown continues. Remain in a safe location.”

Breaking 911 says a suspect is in custody but this has not been confirmed.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has been briefed on the situation at UNCC, according to his Twitter account, which advises those in Charlotte “should stay safe and listen to local officials.”

Before the incident, a concert was scheduled at the school’s football stadium.

A motive for the shootings is unknown at this time.

The university has more than 26,500 students and 3,000 faculty and staff.
