"Unfortunately he had to give his life to do so", said Putney, himself a UNC Charlotte alumnus.

Putney said Howell "did exactly what we train people to do: You're either going to run, you're going to hide and shield, or you're going to take the fight to the assailant".

The deadliest mass shooting on a USA college campus took place at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia, in April 2007, when a student killed 32 people, then himself.

Numerous staff members from Howell's high school, T.C. Roberson High School remembered him as a popular student where he was a member of the soccer and cross-country teams.

Two people were killed and four are injured, three of which are in critical condition.

"Just loud bangs. A couple loud bangs and then we just saw everyone run out of the building, like nervous, like a scared run like they were looking behind", he said.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper called the incident a tragedy.

Four other students - 20-year-old Rami Alramadhan of Saudi Arabia, 20-year-old Sean Dehart of Apex, NC, 23-year-old Emily Houpt of Charlotte, and 19-year-old Drew Pescaro of Apex, NC - were injured.

Two people have been killed and four others wounded - two with life-threatening injuries - in a shooting at the University of North Carolina.

Lucas Tate, who said he grew up with Howell, told The Daily Beast Riley was "the most selfless person" he'd ever known.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and Campus police responded to the scene as the campus was placed on lockdown.

Klopp slams two social media rumours after Liverpool win
In the end, we can not do more than win these games and that's what we did so far and what we try to do again", added Klopp. The midfielder nearly got on the scoresheet late in a victory which sent Liverpool back to the top of the table.

After the shooting, students and faculty scrambled to find safe spaces on the campus of almost 30,000 students, enduring a lengthy lockdown.

A free concert by U.S. rapper Waka Flocka Flame at the school's football stadium was scheduled for 6pm, just after gunshots were reported.

The shooter is set to appear before court for the first time on Thursday and final exams, which were scheduled to begin on Thursday, have been canceled.

The 22-year-old was taken into police custody, officials told WCNC, which captured the moment he was escorted into police headquarters on camera.

"And there are parents that are never going to be able to hug their children again", she said. The campus is northeast of the city center and surrounded by residential areas.

It's unclear whether those injured were students of the university.

"It's the worst feeling when that text comes", she said.

Susan Harden, an UNCC professor and Mecklenburg County Commissioner, was at home when she heard of the shooting.

'And I know that this violence has to stop.

"It breaks my heart. We assured him we're going to find out the why", Putney said. "Students should be able to learn in peace and in safety and professors ought to be able to do their jobs in safety".
