Suspect charged with 1st-degree murder in shooting of faculty member at UNC-Chapel Hill
A UNC-Chapel Hill faculty member was killed and a suspect was taken into custody after a shooting prompted a three-hour lockdown Monday and rattled a campus one week into the new school year. The faculty member’s name was not being released pending notification of family, university leaders said during a news conference Monday evening. Tailei Qi, 34, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and possessing a firearm on educational property. Police said it was too early to know a possible motive. No other injuries were reported.
