The man accused of shooting and killing two UNC Charlotte students and injuring four more has been indicted by a grand jury.
Trystan Terrell was indicted on May 6th on the following charges: two counts of first-degree murder, one count of discharging a firearm on educational property, one count of possession of a gun on educational property, four counts of attempted first-degree murder, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
This indictment transfers the case from District Court to Superior Court and negates the need for any previously scheduled hearings in District Court. That means Terrell’s May 15 District Court bond hearing that had been scheduled in this case will no longer be held.
Terrell’s next court date in Superior Court has not yet been scheduled.
