UNC Charlotte is reeling from a tragedy. A gunman entered a classroom (the last day of classes before finals) and opened fire. However, Mr. Terrell charged the gunman as he was firing. He was able to restrain him, but he gave his life in the process. The police chief said of him, “But for his work, the assailant may not have been disarmed.” A 21-year-old, possessed of ethical fiber, acted without hesitation. His parents’ grief is unimaginable, but there is surely some comfort they can take in knowing what an incredible young man they had raised and nurtured. RIP
