COLUMBIA, SC — WCCB Charlotte has confirmed that the shooter in a murder-suicide on the University of South Carolina campus was the victim’s ex-wife.
The coroner says Sunghe Kwon shot Dr. Raja Fayad several times inside a fourth floor office on Thursday, then killed herself. Investigators found an empty nine-millimeter, semi-automatic handgun at the scene. Students are still struggling with what happened.
“I don’t know what feeling I’m going to have walking into that building again,” said one student. “I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to concentrate. I’m afraid that’s all I’m going to be able to think about every time I’m in class there.”
The Arnold School of Public Health remains closed. There’s no word when it will reopen.
