Campus Police Officer Credited With Quickly Taking UNC Charlotte Shooting Suspect Into Custody
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A UNC Charlotte Police Officer is being credited with quickly taking the shooting suspect into custody.
Sergeant Rick Gundacker is a 25-year law enforcement veteran. He rushed into the Kennedy building moments after the shots were fired.
“As I was getting closer, students were running at me, and it became really real,” says Gundacker. “There was the process of my brain, going through things, once I had him in custody, I needed to help the victims. I treat these students like my kids.”
Gundacker added, “I’m proud of the officers that responded also, the officers were in that building with me. I wasn’t the only one.”
