The Latest: NC university remembers slain students at vigil


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The chancellor of the North Carolina university where two students were shot and killed in a classroom says the school won’t be defined by the tragedy.
University of North Carolina-Charlotte Chancellor Philip Dubois said during a vigil in the school’s basketball arena that the university can be defined by how it responds to Tuesday’s shooting, which also injured four other students.
Student Body President Chandler Crean fought back tears as he said Wednesday that students, professors and administrators must do all they can to make sure this never happens at another school.
Emotion caught in DuBois’ voice several times also. He told the thousands of people at the vigil they will forever be changed, but they will forever be stronger.
Students were also invited to an on-campus candlelight vigil later Wednesday.
