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.
This is Drew Pescaro.— Christine Sperow WBTV (@ChristineOnTV) May 1, 2019

He’s a sports writer for @niner_times who says he’s out of surgery. Stable.
His family is asking for prayers. ????????
