By Mark Berman, Sarah Kaplan and Kevin Sullivan

NORTH CAROLINA---A Chapel Hill man has been charged with shooting and killing three people near the campus of the University of North Carolina on Tuesday night. This rare spasm of violence for the region sparked alarm and drew international attention due to the fact that all three victims were Muslim, though police said that initial indications suggested the shooting stemmed from an altercation involving parking. The three victims were identified by police and school officials in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They were all young adults with ties to universities in the region. [link]
