Arrest made in North Carolina campus homicide

For many, college is a time to experiment and to experience a certain amount of freedom. Unfortunately, one student's college experience was cut short after North Carolina police say that he was murdered on campus. A former student of the same college has since been arrested in connection with the alleged homicide.

The incident happened in the early morning hours of a day in late October. While many of the details regarding the incident remain unclear, it appears that a 19-year-old male died of gunshot wounds while another victim was injured. The shooting reportedly happened in a parking lot on the campus of Winston-Salem State University.

A former student at the school has since been arrested concerning the fatality. Police originally arrested him due to existing warrants unrelated to this incident. He has since been charged with murder and faces an additional weapons charge for having a gun on a college campus. North Carolina police have not said whether he will face additional charges in regard to the wounded victim.

There are many unanswered questions stemming from this recent North Carolina homicide, including a motive for the shooting.  However, when a shooting occurs on a college campus, police often face extreme pressure to determine the identity of an alleged shooter, sometimes resulting in charges that may not be fully supported by available evidence. As a result, those facing charges in such an incident will likely want the assistance of an experienced defense attorney who will be willing to represent their interests and fight on their behalf.
