Two people have died and others have been injured after a gunman went on a shooting spree around the University of North Carolina.

 

The University was placed on lockdown late yesterday afternoon after an alert was issued about a gun being fired. 

 

 

 

The alert said: "Shots reported near kennedy. Run, Hide, Fight. Secure yourself immediately."

 

Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Services Agency said on Twitter that two people were found dead at the scene, two others have life-threatening injuries and two others have injuries that are not life-threatening.

Photos from the scene showed police officers running towards a building on campus while students ran out in different directions.

 

Police later said a suspect had been taken into custody and they believe he was acting alone.
