The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

We’ve gotten word of one of the UNCC shooting victim’s names.

We learned the name of the shooter last night, but today we are hearing more about the victims. Two victims have been confirmed as deceased while four others have been confirmed as injured. Three out of those four have been reported to be in critical condition and one out of the four we have gotten word from a family member that he has made it out of surgery and while his road to recovery may be a long one, he is expected to make a full recovery.

Drew Pescaro was among the four that were shot and injured. He’s a member of the fraternity Alpha Tau Omega and they made the below statement on Facebook. Pescaro also writes for the student newspaper, Niner Times.
